The Health Show #1314

What is it about Americans that makes solving the problem of drugs and addiction so difficult?  Addiction to drugs impacts almost every other problem facing the nation, from education to crime to poverty to health care.  What are the most effective ways to defeat addiction and how has the war on drugs made the problem worse?  These are the questions being tackled by award winning journalist and author David Sheff.  

On today’s Health Show, we feature an in depth conversation on the topic of addiction in America with David Sheff...and talk about some of the possible answers to the problem in his new book called “Clean - Overcoming Addiction and Ending America's Greatest Tragedy”
