The opioid crisis in America brings attention primarily to two groups: patients who take the pain pills, and the doctors who prescribe them. 

Dr. Mark Greenberg of Ashland is a pain management specialist, and he has been both doctor and patient in pain situations. 

He was mentioned in a recent article on opioids in the Wall Street Journal, telling his story of not taking the meds prescribed for him after surgery last year.  He visits with some thoughts on the proper use of opioids after surgery.
