Dr. Ryan Shephard to Upgrade Popular Opioid Blog Site this Month
LOS ANGELES, Jan. 17, 2019
LOS ANGELES, Jan. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Individuals who would like to stay up to date on the United States' current opioid crisis can soon take advantage of an upgraded version of an already-popular opioid-focused blog website by Dr. Ryan Shephard.
The website can be found at http://www.drryanshephard.com/.
Since version 1.0 of the blog website was released, the site has received a large amount of traffic. As a result, it has received numerous number-one rankings across all of the major search engines. For this reason, Dr. Shephard plans to release a new-and-improved version of the website -- version 2.0 -- during the first quarter of 2019.
Dr. Shephard said he will double the investment made in the website and will continue to provide readers with even more resources in the New Year. In the meantime, he said he would like to take the time to thank all of his website readers for turning this "passion project" of his into something more.
Dr. Shephard initially created the website because he is passionate about helping people. Specifically, he wanted to help people to start the discussion on the opioid crisis. Dr. Shephard is aware that 115 people die every day from these drugs, but people can take steps to prevent the loss of lives as a result of this crisis.
For instance, on Dr. Shephard's website, readers can learn about alternatives to opioids for those who need pain management help. In addition, Dr. Shephard provides key red flags to look for to determine if a friend or loved one has an opioid addiction.
Dr. Ryan Shephard, an orthopedic surgeon and a father of three, said that his goal when prescribing pain medication is to ensure that his patients are as comfortable as possible but also to allocate medication conservatively and responsibly. Through his site, readers can gain both the information and the inspiration they need to help to fight the pervasive opioid epidemic.
