Pain Killer Addiction in New Hampshire

An article was printed in the local newspaper this morning regarding pain killer addiction in NH. I felt the the inalienable need to approach this subject after receiving an Anonymous message from someone who cares about the addicted people of NH.
See the article at the link below:
Addiction to strong narcotic pain-killers killing  more


Aren't the Doctor's in NH responsible for this epidemic? Should they be prescribing large amounts of painkillers to anyone? Shouldn't they be looking for the problem causing the pain instead of just masking the symptoms?
Because the  prescription monitoring program went into effect in 2012, signed by Governor Lynch, does that let these Doctor's off the hook?
 Isn't it then the Doctor's responsibility  to help the patient kick the addiction she/he helped to create? Then Why does the Doctor  leave the addicted patient to fend for his/herself, after begging for help? After not fixing the mess he/she created? Why does the Doctor  make it impossible to obtain help elsewhere?
My take on this one: The Doctor know's he/she is at fault and is afraid of losing his/her medical license. He/she want's to save his/her own butt.
So now that the addicted patient has nowhere to turn, what happens next?
So what's left for the Patient? Where do they  turn? Most likely, the streets.
There aren't enough substance abuse programs in NH   and the Doctor's prescribing these large doses of pain killers need to be held responsible for their actions.
I've come across so many people in NH, now addicted to pain killer's it's sickening.
NH Doctor's have created this problem, not only for their newly addicted patients, but for their families as well. 
So what will our new Governor do to remedy Addiction in NH? And what if anything will happen to the Doctor's responsible for Pain Killer Addiction?
