Description

The opioid crisis is everyone’s crisis. Despite a decade of national attention fueled by federal resources, state laws, mass education and prescribing modifications, trends that alarmed us then look worse now. Opioid overdoses, fueled by untreated addiction, are now the number one accidental cause of death in adults age 18-45 and have reduced the average American life expectancy. What would the world look like if we were equipped with the information to use opioids wisely, store them safely, avoid their risks and reverse their problems? The answers are buried in our past, hidden in our biology, masked by our psychology and misunderstood sociologically. In this talk, I will lay out the proven steps to ending the opioid crisis. We’ll break down the myths and separate fact from fiction on the realities of opioids and their safety so we can empower this generation to be the last generation that fights the battle.
