Dr. Holly Geyer is an Addiction Medicine Specialist at Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, AZ. Her passions lie within educating and building awareness toward prevalent drug issues. Specifically, the interpersonal link, what we can do to help ourselves and those we know who are struggling. A key part of her work focuses on quality of life and the best use of nondrug interventions for diseases such as cancer. However, OPIOID OVERDOSE is now the leading cause of death in persons 18-45, so Dr. Geyer includes stories of individuals and families dealing with drug addiction in her book “ENDING THE CRISIS: The Mayo Clinic’s Guide to Opioid Addiction and Safe Opioid Use.” It’s an important guide for all of us.
