Description
"Developed by Mayo Clinic leaders in the fields of pain management, opioids, and addiction, and championed by people willing to share their personal experiences, this empowering book encourages patients and their loved ones to make informed, life-saving decisions about the use of opioids. The book includes: a foreword by former Surgeon General Jerome Adams, whose landmark report declared opioids one of the nation’s most urgent health issues; advice for how to work with health care providers to use opioids safely, manage side effects and prevent complications; resources for those struggling with addiction, and their families, from how treatment centers work to how to find a program that can help; an example of a real-life intervention, including a play-by-play narrative of the discussion and a post-intervention evaluation; step-by-step instructions for how to administer life-saving doses of naloxone; impactful personal stories of people who have experienced opioid addiction in some way – from a daughter who lost a mom to a mom who lost a son to people who almost lost their entire lives — showing that no one is immune from the effects opioids have on society and the importance of ending this crisis now." --,Publisher.
