Nearly a quarter of those prescribed opioids misuse them, with around 10 percent developing an addiction. Opioid addiction often leads to heroin use over time, often resulting in death.

However, as the Insys debacle indicates, insatiable drug companies and corrupt doctors pose more of a threat.

Babich will hopefully be a warning to those exploiting addiction for profits.
