Dr. Troiani Discusses with NPR Illinois How Opioid Use Can Increase Risk of Suicide

In the Media | 01.17.19

Joseph Troiani, Ph.D., a licensed clinical drug counselor and a professor at Adler University’s Online Campus, was featured in an NPR Illinois story discussing the relationship between opioid use and suicide. Troiani explains that some suicides might be prevented if more opioid users were able to get professional help.
