Getting through life when suffering through addiction is no easy feat, so try to imagine how hard it can be when a natural disaster like Hurricane Harvey or Hurricane Irma hits.

As one researcher told ABC News, during a natural disaster, the problems of addiction can become more public. “It becomes harder to hide and cope with one’s addiction in private.”

Researchers who studied previous storms noted that a disaster can “interrupt treatment and that certain programs, like methadone maintenance, are supposed to have emergency plans in case of a natural disaster.” 

With the current opioid crisis, some were given a week’s worth of Narcan, the overdose antidote, so that people lives could be saved by first responders to a storm. 

A natural disaster can be one of the toughest tests to many suffering from addiction, and as one woman who worked at a Florida recovery home advised those suffering from addiction to “have faith in the foundation you’ve built. If you get into fear, reach out and speak to somebody.”
