Dr. Sack Featured on talkSPORT Radio

In the interview, Dr. Sack talks about how many athletes can be vulnerable to drug and alcohol addiction due to a number of reasons such as how it’s hard to adjust to normal life when involved in such intense games and matches and how many athletes struggle when they are not around their families for long periods of time and have no support.

He also talks about how injuries are a huge factor because athletes can become addicted to pain medications which can ultimately spin out of control.  Dr. Sack mentions how sports organizations have a responsibility to educate the younger athletes about the risks and offer early intervention and treatment for those who are struggling.  Listen to the interview here.
