SUBSTANCE ABUSE DURING A PANDEMIC - WHY CARE?
This year, drug abuse will likely kill as many Americans as the pandemic, maybe more. We will solve the pandemic, reasonably quickly, but Americans will continue to die from drug abuse for years to come. How and why? How did the substance abuse epidemic start? What keeps it going and why are medical professionals caught in the middle? Bob hears from students across the country that sports injuries and wisdom teeth are often a young adult’s first introduction to controlled substances.

Drug abuse is the leading cause of accidental death in the United States, and based on a recent peer review study, it will cause approximately 700,000 American deaths over the next ten years. Bob will discuss the etiology of this drug epidemic, the paradigm shift in the U.S., and how this epidemic differs from previous generations. Discussion will include who is abusing drugs, predictors for whether or not a child will use, and what prevention actually works. Bob provides scientifically based, comprehensive information regarding the most current drug trends in the U.S., along with compelling anecdotes from the front lines of today’s families, schools, communities, and professional organizations.
