Deborah Kobylt LIVE


Dec 6, 2023

Please welcome to our show Susan Bartz Herrick, whose memoir, “Slow Dancing with
the Devil: A Son’s Substance Use Disorder, A Mother’s Anguish,” follows the story of
her only son, Luke, through his struggle with opioid addiction, recovery, sobriety, and
untimely death. Susan is joined by Luke’s closest friend, actor Jacob Taylor, who is
seeking to bring Luke’s story to life as a film. Jacob was recently in the movie,
“Oppenheimer.”


Speaking with Susan, I was taken how determined she is - even through her
gut-wrenching grief - to to expose how so many continue to struggle with opioid
addiction, how the medical community continues to prescribe the drug, and what can
be done to keep the drugs from being overprescribed, and how best to help a person
once they become addicted. And it’s very difficult.


Please join our full interview on all video and audio platforms of #DeborahKobyltLIVE,
and please invite anyone you know who can benefit from this conversation. Susan is a
professor, and her book is well researched with documentation from authorities in the
medical profession. We look forward to having you join us. I’m your host,
#DeborahZaraKobylt.
