Behind the Blue

Some stories require a little more – a little more discussion, more context, more depth and breadth. That’s the idea behind “Behind the Blue” – a weekly podcast created by UK Public Relations and Marketing. It is designed to explore through probing interviews the in-depth the stories that make UK the university for Kentucky and that have impact across the institution, the Commonwealth and, in some cases, the world.

Drug overdose is now the leading cause of accidental death in the United States, and opioid addiction is a primary driver of this epidemic. The American Society of Addiction Medicine reports that an estimated 23% of individuals who use heroin develop an opioid addiction.

On this episode of Behind the Blue, we're joined by Dr. Catherine Martin, the Dr. Laurie L. Humphries Chair in Child Psychiatry at UK. Dr. Martin is currently working on research grants investigating individual differences related to drug effects in children, adolescents, and adults.

The UK Department of Psychiatry's clinical services include a model clinic for the treatment of adolescent substance abuse or adolescents at high risk of substance abuse. The clinic operates within a treatment program entitled Adolescent Health and Recovery Treatment and Training (AHARTT). Dr. Martin joins us to discuss the work the clinic and the AHARTT program has performed, and the benefits provided to healthcare workers across the state.

Montgomery specializes in development and international economics, among other areas, and on “Behind the Blue” she discussions the implications for the referendum on the future of the EU and even the economic impact on the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
