Linda discusses a very serious problem facing America – the opiate crisis. 

Did you know that enough opioids were prescribed last year to provide every American with 36 pills? 

Opioids have their short-term place when it comes to pain; the problem starts with over prescribing.

Here with more this morning is Dr. Paul Sethi, an orthopedic surgeon working with “Choices Matter,” a recover initiative aimed at educating both patients and doctors about their options and seven-time NBA all-star and sports show host Grant Hill who has had multiple surgeries over the years and explains how he managed his pain during recovery.
