Somebody needed to write about the solutions to the opioid epidemic from the perspective of a person in recovery who is familiar with the political game. Ryan Hampton has done that. This book is influential and important. The pharmaceutical industry must be forced to take some responsibility. I am a woman in recovery due to narcotics prescribed for legitimate chronic pain and I relate to this and want to help. We do recover.

taraWritesSci Stacked! I read Drug Dealer, MD by Anna Lembke a few months back which was from a doctor's perspective and thought that was eye-opening, I'm sure this will go even further. 7mo
