Dr. Andrew Kolodny: Opioid crisis 'not an abuse crisis, it's an addiction epidemic'
Dr. Andrew Kolodny, Co-Director of Opioid Policy Research, The Heller School for Social Policy And Management at Brandeis University says that the crisis of opioid addiction is being misrepresented. He calls it an "addiction epidemic" and goes on to say that for the vast majority of people, opioids are not safe and effective treatments dealing with chronic pain.
