In this episode of Recovery Radio, we will be focused on addiction in adolescents. Zach is joined by Dr. Joseph Shrand, Chief Medical Officer of Riverside Community Care, Lecturer of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, and creator of Drug Story Theater. Dr. Shrand will be talking with us about adolescent brain development and why the brain is at such a high risk for addiction during this stage. Following Dr. Shrand, we’re joined by Dr. Alex Elswick who will be discussing the opioid epidemic and how reliance on pain relievers can turn into the disease of addiction.
