Ahead of his book “The Opioid Epidemic,” Scott H. Silverman appeared on Fox 2 in Detroit to discuss addiction, the “pandemic within the pandemic.” Scott discussed the challenges that the pandemic have caused to those who struggle with a substance use disorder, as well as mental health issues like depression and anxiety.
