At the 20 minute mark: Suboxone:
Dr. Bruce and Drew discuss the complexities of managing chronic pain with and without addiction or dependency. They distinguish addiction verse non addict dependent patients. They also discuss why it is that Suboxone is not used more routinely as a first-line treatment for chronic pain given anecdotal reports and literature suggesting it is a beneficial treatment. The Docs also go through the complexities of the various co-occuring disorders seen in chronic pain and addiction.
Outro Music: “Blood Bizzness (Feat. Keely Raquel)” by Fabrizio And The Fever from the album Nunchuck Fury, available on iTunes.
