Meadows' Senior Fellow, Dr. Jerry Boriskin, was recently interviewed for the "Chronic Pain Solutions' podcast. Dr. Stephen Grinstead talks with Dr. Boriskin about his insights around people living with chronic pain who also have an unresolved trauma history and/or an addictive disorder. In this interview Dr. Boriskin brought his 30 years of expertise to focus on this population. They also covered the importance of taking the stigma off the different diagnoses that the people they serve have developed- sometimes through no fault of their own.
