In Pain

In Pain by Travis Rieder is harrowing. It is subtitled A Bio Ethicist’s Personal Struggle With Opioids. Surgeries after a serious motorcycle accident catapulted the author into the nightmare cycle of pain treatment with opioids and subsequent, torturous withdrawal. This book was written to help call attention to a system that does not effectively manage these powerful drugs, even when they’re prescribed. (Non-Fiction)
