"This book should be required reading for every American having any role in developing or implementing drug policy—perhaps that should include every registered voter."

"Andraka-Christou presents a well-organized, coherent, and compelling argument in favor of opioid agonist therapy. Combining fascinating historical details with anecdotes that give the narrative richness and texture, this book is an excellent primer for anyone who wants to learn more about the history, effectiveness, and barriers to opioid agonist treatment in the United States."

"With personal stories and persuasive data in equal measure, this compelling book dispels myths and misunderstandings about the use of medications to treat opioid addiction. It shines a light for individuals with addiction, families, healthcare providers, and policymakers to follow."

"The opioid epidemic has been associated with a blizzard of statistics. Yet the consequences of opioid use disorder, its treatment, and the policy making aimed at addressing the crisis remain profoundly human enterprises. Professor Andraka-Christou returns us to the human side with a rich qualitative study of the evolving opioid epidemic. This book offers a leavening influence on the discussion of the American opioid crisis."

"The Opioid Fix tells the haunting story of how and why Americans experiencing opioid addiction, a chronic medical condition, have been offered ineffectual and non-scientific 'treatments' while being denied life-saving medication. In compelling prose, Andraka-Christou offers her readers rare insight into how and why this phenomenon began and, most importantly, proffers a promising, evidence-based 'fix' for our opioid crisis."
