Addiction research and progress around stigmas
July 27, 2021
Hosted by Zachary Crouch
Today’s guest, Dr. Mark Gold, is a pioneer in addiction research. Specializing in addiction-related diseases in the 1970s and long before it was considered a health factor by physicians and researchers, Dr. Gold has over 45 years of experience studying and destigmatizing addiction, from opioids and cocaine to food and other drugs. In this episode, Zach and Dr. Gold cover substance use disorders (SUDs), progress around the stigma of addiction, the epidemic of opioid overdoses, and the transition to post-pandemic life.
