While much of the focus on illegal drug abuse went to meth and heroin, prescription drugs came along and became a huge problem.
The opioids--Oxycontin and the like--are responsible for much of the illegal drug trade.
And medical professionals have teamed up to curb the trade, through groups like the Opioid Prescribers Group in the Rogue Valley.
Acupuncturist Joshua Graner at Kolpia Counseling Services is part of the effort.
He joins us to talk about the approaches, which differ from patient to patient.
