Dr. Russell Ferstandig of Monmouth Behavioral Medicine approaches drug addiction in a unique way. He is joining us throughout the morning today to discuss that and the problems of drug addiction and the heroin epidemic in Monmouth and Ocean Counties.

We will also feature special guests throughout the show, including patients who will courageously share their story with us. It's a tough but important topic that needs to be discussed, and we hope to bring you as many answers as possible to all the questions so many of us have.

We will be posting audio from the show on the website, so in case you miss anything or you want to share the info with someone you care about, it will be here for you. We will also get visits during the show from Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden and Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph Coronato.

We hope today's show makes a positive difference in many lives in Monmouth and Ocean Counties. Hear some of what Dr. Ferstandig had to say this morning below.
