Opioids or meth? The addiction epidemic part 3


Thad Shunkwiler, assistant professor in the department of Health Science at Minnesota State Mankato, joins us again this week for part 3 of our discussion on addiction. We have already covered how methamphetamines are the drug of choice in Greater Minnesota these days, and a shortage of licensed treatment providers is leading policymakers to think about ways to incentivize people to enter the field and practice in rural areas. This week Thad reviews what happens to a person on amphetamines and the dangers of addiction.
