What is well being? Relation of well-being with drug usage and homelessness.
The problem of the opioid and young population:
According to Arizona Department of health services report (June 2017- present), 15,540 possible opioid overdoses were reported with the county having the highest number of 7084(("AZDHS | Opioid Epidemic", n.d.)). This leads to the question of easy accessibility to drugs. One of the persons who was evacuated from the house was a college student. It is strange to see how drugs are accessible to young generations who are unemployed and do not have family support too. Such cases make policymakers to ponder over again on the legalization of certain drugs.
The inequality term is complex per se. While one can easily see the inequality in health based on income criteria, the above-mentioned cases went unnoticed and are complex to understand. Those college students who couldn’t afford houses were on drugs. Does inequality of income or wealth push individuals to hardly care for their own well-being (in terms of health, education, and income/employment)? These individuals do not get a chance to get counseling or rehabilitation centers too.
There was a beautiful house in the Phoenix area.
But... she let initially three people to stay in their houses. All of them were on drugs and littered the whole house including the toilet.
The house was owned by a guy who was in prison and his daughter wanted to sell the house for money but...
The Police came and evacuated the house. And the story begins...
One of the guys evacuated was a college-going kid.
With no source of income. No employment.
