Addiction Born from Occupation: How the Opioid Crisis Ties into Workers Compensation Injuries

Season #3

Not only did the pharma companies misinform the public of addictive opioids, but corporations unknowingly exacerbated the problem through occupational healthcare for their employees. My guest, Michelle Weidenbenner, author of Moms Letting Go, was directly affected by the opioid crisis when she took in her grandchildren to allow their parents to recover from addiction. She has gone on to form an alliance of Unhackable Moms who are taking the brunt of the strain of caring for an addicted loved one on their shoulders. Find her book at and find out more about her cause.
