"Hulu’s ‘Dopesick’ Was About Me: I Prescribed Oxy While Taking 100 Pills A Day.” - With Dr. Stephen Loyd
Manage episode 343372393 series 2755314
It’s the type of story they base Emmy Award winning shows off of. A small town doctor tries to help his patients but ultimately becomes the target of Purdue Pharma’s OxyContin crimes. So he went from doctor, to addict, to a walking miracle once his addiction recovery began. At one point, his addiction became so dark that he was taking 100 pills per day while still prescribing oxy to those who came to him for help. This is a bone-chilling, firsthand account of how the greed and evils of one pharmaceutical company in the 90s led to a full blown opioid crisis and thousands of deaths across America. Dr. Stephen Loyd’s story embodies the crisis so poignantly that it became the central inspiration for Michael Keaton’s award winning performance on Hulu’s ‘Dopesick.’ This episode is now Alex’s favorite interview to date.
