Investigative reporter: wants to talk to US Veterans and family members of Veterans

Call for Participation:

I invite US Veterans and family members of Veterans to assist me in supporting an investigative reporter in mainstream media who is developing a story for television on the “other” side of the so-called opioid crisis. If you are willing to share your experience with being denied or arbitrarily tapered down on opioid medications that have been helpful for you in the past, then please send a contact email address and phone to You may also include a paragraph on how you have been personally affected by the CDC’s 2016 opioid prescription guidelines. Also of interest will be narratives from medical professionals who have been forced by VA policy to reduce or stop prescribing to their patients.

Be aware that there are no guarantees that this program will reach the public. The project must be developed and “sold” first. But this is at least a start.
