"Andraka-Christou presents a well-organized, coherent, and compelling argument in favor of opioid agonist therapy. Combining fascinating historical details with anecdotes that give the narrative richness and texture, this book is an excellent primer for anyone who wants to learn more about the history, effectiveness, and barriers to opioid agonist treatment in the United States."

- Anna Lembke, MD, Stanford University School of Medicine, author of Drug Dealer, MD: How Doctors Were Duped, Patients Got Hooked, and Why It's So Hard to Stop

"With personal stories and persuasive data in equal measure, this compelling book dispels myths and misunderstandings about the use of medications to treat opioid addiction. It shines a light for individuals with addiction, families, healthcare providers, and policymakers to follow."

- Joshua M. Sharfstein, MD, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health

"The opioid epidemic has been associated with a blizzard of statistics. Yet the consequences of opioid use disorder, its treatment, and the policy making aimed at addressing the crisis remain profoundly human enterprises. Professor Andraka-Christou returns us to the human side with a rich qualitative study of the evolving opioid epidemic. This book offers a leavening influence on the discussion of the American opioid crisis."

- Richard G. Frank, PhD, Harvard Medical School

"The Opioid Fix tells the haunting story of how and why Americans experiencing opioid addiction, a chronic medical condition, have been offered ineffectual and non-scientific 'treatments' while being denied life-saving medication. In compelling prose, Andraka-Christou offers her readers rare insight into how and why this phenomenon began and, most importantly, proffers a promising, evidence-based 'fix' for our opioid crisis."
