Navigating Addiction Where Nothing is “Normal”

Kushner-Headshot2020web_9c2oy.jpg

 

Dr. David Kushner, the Medical Director at BRIGHTSIDE Clinic where he has treated hundreds of patients with Opioid Use Disorder joins eHealth Radio and the Addiction Prevention and Health News Channels.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Dr. David Kushner discuss the following:

  1. What led you specifically to addiction medicine?
  2. Substance abuse is surrounded by stigma, still, today. What is the number one thing you want people to know about those you help?
  3. Fighting addiction is difficult in a "normal" world, but what about now? How has your mission changed? How have you shifted gears since the pandemic began?
  4. For those who are maybe struggling right now and want to seek treatment, what is the first step they should take? What is your advice to them and/or their loved ones?
  5. If you could give our listeners three pieces of advice and/or recommendations, what would they be?
  6. What have you learned about yourself and/or your colleagues during this time?

TIP: A physician’s skills and knowledge will always be needed, but medicine is rapidly changing like many other industries. Providers cannot rest on their experience and credentials and allow their ego to demand patients be the only ones to change. Cutting edge is no longer just knowledge and new protocols or techniques; it is flexibility in how patients can access you, and understanding how patients and the world have changed leading to reinvention and innovation of the modern medical practice.


Dr. David Kushner is the Medical Director at BRIGHTSIDE Clinic where he has treated hundreds of patients with Opioid Use Disorder. Board-certified in Addiction Medicine, Dr. Kushner is known for his cutting edge, patient-centered, collaborative approach in addressing this challenging, yet treatable condition. Dr. Kushner received his undergraduate degree from Michigan State University, a medical degree from Midwestern University and is a graduate of the Advocate Lutheran General Hospital Internal Medicine Residency Program.
