Thanks for posting Rose. It's great that you have such an interest as an RN in addiction medicine. There is such a demand for this epidemic disease. I hope you enjoy the book!

Dr. Davis, I am looking forward to reading your book. My son's mother is addicted to Oxcycontin, Soma, Xanax, and other prescription medications. It appears that both she and her MD are in denial. She has no confirmed diagnosis that would warrant these types of medications other than her complaint of back pain.

Thank you for making public the neuroimages of brains affected by drug abuse—a great public service. This seems an important step toward busting the myth that marijuana use is harmless, which I’ve heard from doctors.

The Internet medium and visuals should help to communicate the facts to adolescents.
