Parents & Addicts in Need’s Founder Flindt Andersen and Jason LaChance sat-down to discuss a variety of topics in the third episode in a series of four episodes that will cover a verity of topics around addiction, illicit drug trends, recovery tools & tips as well as personal stories of our own recovery journeys.
In this episode we discuss the three phases of the opioid crisis. What is the correlation to the War On Drugs? How did the flood of opioid prescriptions, then the tightening of regulations lead to a rise in heroin overdoses and make way for the current fentanyl crisis that is taking thousands of lives daily.
We also touch on what can actually be done in the current climate with insurance companies giving less and less time for those in treatment to recover as well as what legislators are and aren't doing to help the opioid & fentanyl crisis.
