Recently, Dr. Jani was a keynote speaker at an opioid conference sponsored by Beebe Healthcare. Attendees discussed solutions to end opioid addiction.

A few important takeaways:

  • Opioid addiction is occurring across the country and impacts all ages and demographics.
  • Pain medicine has an addictive property which leads to dependence.
  • Young people are particularly vulnerable: “This is a generation of a quick fix. So it’s like, ‘I have a problem; give me a pill,’ and that needs to change,” said Dr. Jani.
