The book also covers how the healthcare system inadvertently incentivized opioid pill-pushing, because physicians were being pressured to see more patients and spend less time with each one. Quinones: These pills were billed as a boon to doctors -- a tool that all of a sudden [solved] all your problem with chronic pain. It actually ended up being a huge curse for doctors.
