Travis Reider – The Agony of Opioid Withdrawal

This Ted Talk from Travis Rieder is a real eye-opener. Reider was prescribed opioids after a motorcycle accident. When he tried to stop taking them, none of his doctors could provide him with the support he needed to taper off without severe withdrawal symptoms. This is why my 12-Point Opioid Plan calls for more pain management training. We have to do better for people like Travis.
