Opioids in a Pandemic (with Dr. Nzinga Harrison)
Stephanie chats with addiction medicine expert, Dr. Nzinga Harrison, about opioids and addiction in this new pandemic world. How are these unprecedented circumstances affecting those with opioid use and substance use disorders? As a result of social distancing, how have treatment and recovery models shifted? What’s happening with long-standing regulations around medication-assisted treatment? How can we best support ourselves and our loved ones with addiction during this time? Finally, we learn more about Nzinga’s new show, In Recovery, and how you can submit your questions. Please note, Last Day contains mature themes, and may not be appropriate for all listeners.
