Opioid Crisis Awareness


Did the opioid crisis go away during COVID-19? Or has it gotten worse?


The question: Why don't we hear about the opioid crisis in America anymore? Did it go away during COVID?

Dr Kosten is the Jay H. Waggoner Endowed Chair and co-founder at the Institute for Clinical and Translational Research. He is also a professor of psychiatry, neuroscience, pharmacology, and immunology at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas.
