San Francisco has won a landmark lawsuit against Walgreens pharmacy over its role in fueling the opioid epidemic in the city. A federal judge found that Walgreens filled hundreds of thousands of suspicious prescriptions for powerful painkillers over 15 years, without taking steps to prevent their misuse. California's Supreme Court may soon get its first Latina Chief Justice. Patricia Guerrero currently sits on the state's supreme court as an associate justice and she's held that role since March.

Recovering from surgery can be difficult —  and opioids actually make it tougher. In addition to side effects such as nausea, lethargy and potential breathing problems, this potent painkiller also carries the risk of addiction for about 3 to 4 percent of surgical patients. That number climbs to about 8 percent for bariatric surgery patients because they may also be battling joint pain stemming from their weight issues. On this episode of the podcast, two bariatric surgeons share how they are limiting, and in some cases even eliminating all together, the use of opioids during a patient's stay in the hospital and after discharge through their "enhanced recovery" initiative. They are: Dominick Gadaleta, MD, chair of surgery, South Shore University Hospital David Pechman, MD, bariatric surgeon, South Shore University Hospital And they're joined by an expert in substance use disorder: Sandeep Kapoor, MD, assistant vice president of Emergency Medicine Addiction Services.

In the third episode of our opioid use disorder series, we explore therapy, sponsors, and return to use with our patient TJ and Expert Dr. Chan. Share your reactions and questions with us at  Speak Pipe. We might feature you on a future episode!=== Outline ===1. Introduction (0:00)2. Chapter 9: Therapy (individual vs group) (3:29)3. Chapter 10: Sponsors (17:33)4. Chapter 11: Return to Use (21:40)5. Conclusion: (34:39)=== Learning Points ===While resources such as group therapy, NA, and other 12-step programs are not for everyone, they can be important tools to offer our patients. Sponsors can often relate to a patient's struggles with opioid use disorder more authentically than we can as their providers. While a sponsor may not be for everyone, they can be invaluable to walk alongside some patients on their journey. Return to use is hard, both for patients and providers. We must accept that return to use is part of the disease of addiction, and this is not an excuse to pull back on medication treatment or to give up on our patients.=== Our Expert(s) ===Dr. Carolyn Chan is an academic hospitalist at Yale New-Haven Hospital with interests in medical humanities, quality improvement, and addiction medicine.

In this week's episode, Coach Blu and our Athletic Director Marissa deeply dive into the human brain and the hormone that can make addiction recovery challenging. The brain is the most complex organ in the body. This three-pound mass of gray and white matter sits at the center of all human activity—you need it to drive a car, enjoy a meal, breathe, create an artistic masterpiece, and enjoy everyday activities. The brain regulates your body's essential functions, enables you to interpret and respond to everything you experience, and shapes your behavior. In short, your brain is you—everything you think and feel and who you are. Listen as the talk about D.O.S.E. the four chemical we as humans strive for. D is for doapmine. Dopamine is a type of neurotransmitter. Your body makes it, and your nervous system uses it to send messages between nerve cells. That's why it's sometimes called a chemical messenger. Dopamine plays a role in how we feel pleasure. It's a big part of our unique human ability to think and plan. It helps us strive, focus, and find things interesting. O is for oxytocin.  In the brain, oxytocin acts as a chemical messenger and has an important role in many human behaviours including sexual arousal, recognition, trust, romantic attachment and mother–infant bonding. As a result, oxytocin has been called the 'love hormone' or 'cuddle chemical'. S is for serotonin. In the brain, serotonin helps with mood regulation and memory, but it also has important jobs in other parts of the body.  In fact, most of the serotonin in your body is found in your gut, not your brain. The intestines produce almost all of the body's serotonin supply, and serotonin is required to promote healthy digestion. Elsewhere in the body, serotonin helps with sleep, sexual function, bone health, and blood clotting. E is for endorphins. Endorphins are chemicals produced by the body to relieve stress and pain. They work similarly to a class of drugs called opioids. Opioids relieve pain and can produce a feeling of euphoria. They are sometimes prescribed for short-term use after surgery or for pain-relief.

This podcast is our first episode on the facts behind alcohol and alcoholism.We learn that:One could consider alcoholism an epidemic if we count a minimum of 14 million adults as having the disease.And since it does not travel alone, those 14 million adults affect another 5 people each so 70 million are in one way or another affected.The myth that we can protect our young people from the risks of becoming alcoholics by introducing them to drink early in life is one of the most dangerous myths out there. The facts speak totally otherwise.The deadly effects of alcoholism are under-reported. Death certificates may say cirrhosis of the liver but do not mention that a lifetime of drinking was the real cause of death.Alcohol is still a socially acceptable drug and being a drunk somehow carries less of a stigma than being an addict, even though one is addicted to alcohol.

Back this week and we discuss not only the unfolding of the situation with Britney Griner, but also another American stuck in Russia over a little weed in his luggage. We talk about how we should also apply the desire to release these prisoners abroad right here within the US. Locally we discuss plans to move the homeless into Virginia Key which was historically a black beach, and we talk about the pedo pendejo Matt Gaetz who is currently getting his ass handed back to him by the women he insulted. Our interview is with the inspiring Jeffrey DeMond of the Grateful Veteran who has turned his life around from Opioid addiction thanks to Cannabis. Weed changed his life so much he is helping others do the same through his advocacy.

It's estimated that more than 107,000 people in the United States died due to opioid overdoses in 2021. Washington Post journalist Scott Higham says it's "the equivalent of a 737 Boeing crashing and burning and killing everybody on board every single day." In the new book, American Cartel, Higham and co-author Sari Horwitz make the case that the pharmaceutical industry operated like a drug cartel, with manufacturers at the top; wholesalers in the middle; and pharmacies at the level of "street dealers."

I'm sharing a bonus episode from my friends at Revisionist History, Malcolm Gladwell's podcast about things misunderstood and overlooked. This season, Malcolm's obsessed with experiments – natural experiments, scientific experiments, thought experiments. In this preview, we learn about Paul Madden, who ran the California Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement in the 1930s. He enacted an expensive, burdensome, annoying bit of bureaucratic anti-drug hysteria known as the “triplicate program” that made every doctor in the state miserable because it involved a lot of paperwork. But Madden insisted this kind of paperwork would save lives. Fast forward to the 90s and early 2000s, when opioids were being prescribed as painkillers at a rapid rate – and killing tens of thousands of Americans due to overdoses. The government looked to Madden's triplicate program as a way of preventing the epidemic. A handful of states started their own triplicate prescription programs, but most ignored the warning signs. The result was a devastating natural experiment.

Just say no. Drugs are whack.  Recognize, Resist, Report.   These phrases stem from programs and campaigns and political agendas that ultimately hurt the United States and its people. The Drug Abuse Resistance Education Program or DARE filled schools in the 90s—and while overall being deemed ineffective, it continues today asking youth to take pledges to stay away from drugs and gangs. Then there's the failed and heavily criticized War on Drugs that began in the 70s but really took off in the 80s. With it came laws that criminalized drugs and racially targeted specific groups and communities of people—especially people of color. Its focus weighed heavily on deterring use rather than emphasizing treatment and recovery.   So today, with all of this in mind, we have the immense honor of talking with and learning from Dr. Nzinga Harrison about addiction and the on-growing and growing opioid epidemic. Dr. Harrison is a physician, educator, and the Chief Medical Officer and Co-Founder of Eleanor Health, a value-based provider of comprehensive, outpatient addiction treatment. Above all else, this conversation is about reframing the way we as individuals and as a society view and address addiction and the people who are dealing with substance use disorders.  Show Notes (Links of ours and guests):   Download a transcript of this episode at twloha.com/podcast.   Follow TWLOHA on social media at: twitter.com/TWLOHA instagram.com/twloha/ facebook.com/towriteloveonherarms/   Visit our FIND HELP page of mental health resources at twloha.com/find-help/.   Get connected for free, 24/7 to a trained crisis counselor via Crisis Text Line by texting TWLOHA to 741741.   Connect with our team by emailing podcast@twloha.com.   Learn more about the podcast and previous episodes at twloha.com/podcast.
