Episode Info:

Doctors are questioning long-held beliefs on how to treat substance abuse and coming up with new answers -- but those living in the Opioid Crisis may be in the dark. Popular culture has us believe in a particular approach to treatment: a confrontational intervention, followed by ultimatums from family and friends, then a long stint at an in-patient rehab facility. In this installment we pick apart these beliefs with Dr. Jonathan Adelstein and discuss how friends and family can effectively help a loved one toward recovery and what treatment looks like today. Dr. Adelstein is an assistant professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences with Northwestern Medicine. He specializes in addiction psychiatry, and has previously worked as a consultant for treatment centers in the Chicago area.
