Join us for an eye-opening episode as we discuss the truth behind the U.S. opioid crisis with our guest, patient advocate Richard A. Lawhern. Contrary to popular belief, doctors did not cause this crisis by over-prescribing opioid pain relievers to their patients. Instead, illegal street drugs primarily drive this crisis, which is fueled by socio-economic determinants of health. We'll delve into the profound misdirections and fraudulent nonsense of current public policy on addiction, overdose deaths, and harm reduction, and explore the multi-dimensional redirections of health care policy needed to address the crisis. Tune in for an informative discussion on the need for new laws and policy redirections to ensure better access to opioid medications under medical supervision, and ultimately, to provide solutions to the millions of U.S. citizens living in a nation in pain. Richard A. Lawhern is a patient advocate. He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, "The real cause of America’s opioid crisis: Doctors are not to blame." The Podcast by KevinMD is brought to you by the Nuance Dragon Ambient eXperience.
