'It's never too late': Task force working to solve Louisiana's opioid crisis

The Advocate - In 2009, Cayce Badeaux McDaniel had just finished college at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and was living what people would consider a normal life. Things were going fine.

It all changed when she broke her neck in a car wreck — an injury that would send her into a spiral of addiction to painkillers.

"Before I even knew it, I was buying it off the street. I was using benzos, and then I used alcohol – basically anything that would make me feel different than I did," McDaniel said.
