He was abusing them, since a fatal dose is well above anything therapeutic, and he can not have been unaware of the danger.  The line is blurry and, in the pursuit of oblivion, they can't be sure when they cross over from temporary to permanent.

By well-above, I would surmise this would mean on orders of magnitude. (An addiction versus an extra this or that on this particular night by mistake) Addicted or not it, was accidental and they would know that.

I suspect the "accidental" diagnosis was for reputation and insurance purposes.

If there was no note it is hard to officially prove otherwise.

Throw enough opiates at someone and they will. And don't say it like its a failure in his personality, its chemical dependence, he couldn't help it.

Each of the drugs may have been within therapeutic levels but taken together could be lethal.

He never struck me as an addictive personality.

What do you call his 4 pack a day cigarette habit? Then the constant vaping after he quit cigarettes.

Not orders of magnitude -- the "safe" increases in dosage, under a doctor's supervision, are pretty shallow steps.  But self-dosing at home at levels above what you tell any one doctor, you know what you're doing.  It's as intentional as russian roulette.

What was crazy about his smoking habit, he always said his cigarette brand was super low in nicotine. What the hell is the appeal of chain smoking low nicotine cigarettes?

Has it been confirmed that a doctor did indeed prescribe all those drugs for Art?
I don't believe it was suicide, but I also think Heather plays into this somehow. She couldn't even face Art's widow. Still waiting for another shoe to drop here. Heather's behavior has been too bizarre to ignore.

This too. Were they all prescribed through one doctor? We may never know.
All I know is when I had a couple of bad molars pulled last year they would only prescribe me ibuprofen. I was actually cussing out that oral surgeon under my breath as I writhed around the couch in pain that day.
Perhaps this level of concern hadn't reached Pahrump.

It would explain a lot more if she somehow played into it.

KNYE should just simulcast KONR.
