Phoenix, AZ: Thursday, April 7, 2022: In this show, host Dr. Suzanne Phillips

is joined by Dr. Eric Garland, the world’s leading expert on the use of mind-body therapies to address opioid misuse and addiction among people with chronic pain. Dr. Garland will discuss “MORE” – “Mindfulness-Oriented Recovery Enhancement,” his new proven effective treatment of Opioid Misuse for Chronic Pain.

In 2020, Dr. Garland completed the largest randomized controlled trial of “MORE” to date and found that this innovative treatment reduced opioid misuse by 45% nine months after the completion of the treatment. Very few if any other interventions have shown such an effective result in decreasing opioid misuse among people with chronic pain.

In Dr. Garland’s discussion with host Dr. Phillips, he will define opioid use disorder (OUD), its relationship to chronic pain and what makes opioids so addictive. He will discuss and exemplify the treatment components of “MORE,” the differences between “MORE” and other treatments and the effectiveness of the treatment in empowering those suffering with a new way of dealing with pain and reducing opioid misuse. Listeners will get a  real glimpse of  MORE and what it is like to be in a “Mindfulness Oriented Recovery Enhancement Group.”

Given the danger of Opioid Use Disorder, the number of people suffering, and the effectiveness of  “MORE”-Mindfulness-Oriented Recovery Enhancement,” this show with Dr. Eric Garland becomes essential to hear.
