Description:
Canada has been grappling for decades in a largely ineffective attempt to keep heroin out of our borders. Now the unsafe prescribing of opioids has organized crime groups turning their attention to ‘customers’ whose addiction started in the doctor’s office. Physicians are going to have to face the tough conversations that involve two of the hardest words in a doctor's vocabulary: enough and no.
