Travis Rieder's journey down the rabbit hole of opioid dependence began with a motorcycle accident. Enduring half a dozen surgeries, the drugs he received were both miraculous and essential to his recovery. But his most profound suffering came several months later when he went into acute opioid withdrawal while following his physician's orders. As he recounts his story, Rieder provides a fascinating look at the history of these drugs, changing attitudes about pain management over the following decades, and the cultural barriers we must overcome if we are to address the problem effectively in the contemporary American healthcare system.
