Executive Editor Anna David appears on the Dr. Drew Show to discuss the impact of prescription drug abuse on newborn babies.

Fix Executive Editor Anna David appeared on The Dr. Drew Show this week to discuss how America's painkiller epidemic is taking a toll on the babies of addicted mothers. She was speaking with Dr. Drew and Dr. Jonathan Fararoff of Cleveland's Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital. "We, as a society, have got to keep drilling it into people's heads that just because it comes in a pill bottle does not mean it's safe and okay," said David, a recovering prescription pill addict. "That is a massive problem that we don't seem to be making any headway in."
