Richard Lawhern PhD became an activist in the field of pain treatment and opiates in response to his wife’s suffering with physical pain. An information analyst by training, he is now among the most scientifically informed and thoughtful individuals in the entire field. Have you been told that over-prescribing doctors are the cause of most addictions and many opioid overdose deaths? No so. Have you heard the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) claims that Americans are massively over-prescribed addictive pain-killing medications? The CDC is wrong. Do you fear the harmful effects of opiates more than you fear psychiatric drugs? You’ve been misled. This is a fascinating and highly informative interview packed with information you are not likely to get anywhere else.
