The Preventable Epidemic

Dr. Arun Gupta wrote the book, The Preventable Epidemic: A Frontline Doctor’s Experience and Recommendations to Resolve America’s Opioid Crisis. Dr. Gupta says that after specializing in addiction medicine for the last 15 years, the country must do more to train and incentivize physicians to go into addiction medicine, as well as promote medically assisted treatment for substance use disorder and treat the whole person because mental health and addiction go hand-in-hand.  Dr. Gupta has details of this strategy and what he says we all must do to reverse overdoses in the U.S.  in this latest episode of Grieving Out Loud.
