Back again with another segment of Ask The Experts. This time we speak with Dr. Leonard A. Lado, M.D. about chronic pain and substance abuse issues.
The opioid crisis is one of the largest challenges currently facing the United States. In 2019 alone, more than 49,000 people died as a result of an opioid-related overdose. Finding a solution to this ongoing crisis has become essential to saving the lives of tens of thousands of Americans struggling with addiction.
