Abstract

In Drug Dealer, MD: How Doctors were Duped, Patients got Hooked and Why it’s So Hard to Stop, Anna Lembke sheds light on the rise of prescription drug addiction in the USA, fuelled in part by the actions of doctors and the structure of the US healthcare system. As the book illuminates the causes and drivers behind the increasing everyday reliance on prescribed opioids, Thomas Christie Williams ponders whether this situation could hit countries such as the UK in the coming future.
