March 30, 2018 – Raising awareness of the facts about the disease of addiction and breaking the stigma associated with addiction are necessary steps toward truly helping families affected by the disease of addiction.
This month, Gimlet Media’s “Science Vs.” podcast released two episodes dedicated to the drug crisis and addiction.
The first episode examines how addiction and the opioid epidemic worsened:
More people in the U.S. died from opioids in 2016 than the peak year of the AIDS epidemic. So how did we get here? We speak to Prof. June Dahl, pain specialist Dr. David Tauben, and emergency physician Dr. Jeanmarie Perrone.
The second episode tackles treatment methods for those struggling with addiction:
America’s got an opioid problem. So where do we go from here? What can actually help people struggling with opioid addiction? We speak to Dr. Anna Lembke, Dr. Marvin Seppala, and a patient we call Mischa.
