Checkup From the Neck-Up, Episode 2 – Dr. Brian Johnson Discusses Opioid Addiction

You probably don’t know that opioids naturally occur in our bodies, and are used to respond to normal pain. In this episode of Checkup from the Neck-Up, host Dr. Rich O’Neill welcomes Dr. Brian Johnson, retired director of the Addiction Medicine Program at SUNY-Upstate, who tells us how and why taking opioid medications almost always increases chronic pain, risks addiction, and what you can do about it. Checkup From the Neck-Up is a new monthly show on Community FM on topics all about our mental and physical health.
