Eric Hartman: A Realist Perspective

Eric Hartman, a Saginaw native, joins us in this episode to share his perspective on a number of topics related to drugs and addiction.  While we’re able to reach quite a bit of common ground in regard to the topics discussed, you’ll hear that we come from two very different schools of thought.

This is mainly because Eric isn’t a drug addict. More than anything our conversation centers around drug education.  We touch on the Just Say No drug education campaign that was commonplace during our school years. Eric’s all about personal accountability and he takes what I would probably call a much more realistic approach to the subject than myself. His line of thinking is simple, just don’t do drugs.  In this episode I preach risk assessment based rather than abstinence based curriculum and share a little on the drug education program that I’m putting together and I also share more about my story than I usual.

What We Discuss with Eric:

  • Eric shares his thoughts on what we can do to better combat drugs in society.
  • He speculates as to why the problem continues to grow at an alarming rate.
  • Eric shares his opinion, which contends, the problem will always be there and there’s not much we can do to change that.

* A correction to a factual error on my part in this episode.  At one point I mention oxycodone prescriptions to have increased 452% from 1996 till 2000 and the correct statistic is 402% *
