Guest: Dr. Anthony Campbell, RPh, D.O., is a Clinical Specialty Consultant with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administrated (SAMHSA) and adjunct professor in Howard University’s College of Pharmacy and College of Medicine.  Drug overdoses are now the leading cause of injury deaths in the United States and are responsible for killing more people than car crashes in most states.  At least half of those overdose deaths are related to prescription drugs – a trend that has more than doubled in the last 14 years. This is all from a national injury report released this week by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
