  2. Note: Doctor-Patient confidentiality does NOT exist for those of us on opioid prescriptions. This makes it difficult for us disabled people to talk about the issues we have, and makes it nearly impossible for able-bodied people living with addiction to seek the help they need, due to the specter of legal intervention in the room with us.
