5:02 am
old. scott pelley takes a look back at her remarkable life. >> reporter: relatively unknown until her husband became president, betty ford became one of the most popular and respected women in america. born elizabeth anne bloomer april 18th, 1918, she grew up in grand rapids, michigan. she dreamed of becoming a professional dancer and after high school she moved east to study under martha graham, the high priestess of modern dance. she earned a spot in the auxiliary dance troupe but her mother pressured her to leave the troupe in 1941. she performed in her own dance troupe, married and divorced and then met a young man named gerald ford, they married in 1948, weeks before ford was elected to his first term in congress. through the 1950s and '60s, they were a traditional and very effective washington couple.
5:03 am
ford rose to be republican house minority leader, while she stayed in the background, and raised their four children. just as they were ready to retire, an accident of history put them in the white house. in 1973, vice president spi spiro agnew resigned in disgrace and gerald ford was named to replace him. when president nixon also resigned less than a year later, gerald ford became the 38th president of the united states. the new first lady was not intimidated by the public spotlight. >> i told my husband, if we have to go to the white house, okay, i will go, but i'm going as myself, and it's too late to change my pattern, and if they don't like it, then they'll just have to throw me out. >> reporter: she was vocal about women's issues. she supported the supreme court's ruling on roe v. wade
5:04 am
which made abortion equal and she supported the equal rights amendment. she openly discussed her breast khan ear and mastectomy. >> there are women all over the country like me and if i don't make this public then their lives will be gone. they're in jeopardy. >> reporter: after they left the white house in 1977, betty ford faced another health crisis. >> my family saw the problem, and they got professional help to come in and help them do what we refer to as an intervention. >> reporter: she had become addicted to both pain killers and alcohol. after her successful treatment, she opened the betty ford for in rancho mirage, california, to treat others with drug and alcohol addiction. >> we're very proud of you, mom. >> reporter: the couple spent much of the rest of their lives together and out of the public spotlight, but the nation saw
5:05 am
her again during the state funeral for former president ford, her husband of 58 years. through all, betty ford faced the challenges of life with the grace and poise of a dancer. scott pelley, cbs news, new york. >> and for a look at betty ford's impact on american politics and society, we turn to presidential historian douglas brinkley in austin, texas, this morning. good morning. >> good morning. >> when historians look back on betty ford what do you think the first thing they'll remember? >> being a pioneer in the women's movement. when she became first lady our country was talking about the burning of bras and equal rights amendments and the need for sexual liberation, and here was a republican first lady who seemed quite fine with a lot of that feminist energy of being ginned up largely from the democratic left. she had a lot of moxie, said
5:06 am
what was on her mind and she was the perfect spouse. pat nixon of course left with richard nixon and she was -- pat nixon was like a mimi eisenhower old-fashioned type lady. betty ford was a progressive woman, devoted to her husband, gerald ford, she also used her mind and humor in the way she chose to. >> i remember when president ford first took office back in '74, one commentator saying she was quite a rascal and another saying she broke the mold for first ladies in many ways. do you agree with that assessment? >> i do. i remember there's a photograph of her just dancing on the desk in the oval office. this was something that wasn't previously done. certainly jackie kennedy had brought in a new sense of style and flair and fashion but betty ford was a truly liberated woman and she would get into trouble some. on cbs's "60 minutes" with
5:07 am
morl morley, she talked about her children's sex lives. the betty ford center has done an incredible amount for this country. everybody knows somebody with a pill or alcohol addiction. that's her chief legacy. >> a certain generation didn't know where the betty ford center came from. they will today after all this news gets out. betty ford's last years we didn't see her a lot. what will here her last years l? >> in rancho mirage i was out there working on a book on president ford. she was royalty out in that part of california not only because of her nonstop commitment to the
5:08 am
betty ford clinic but because she was so warm hearted and generous to everybody around her. she made a great presence wherever she went and her children were deeply loyal to her so she enjoyed being a mom and a grandma the last 20 years of her life. >> okay, douglas brinkley, always good to talk to you. thank you so much. you take care. it is eight past the hour. here's rebecca. >> thank you. two years after the worst recession since world war ii the u.s. economy is still struggling. on friday the labor department reported just 18,000 jobs were created in the month of june, the fewest in nine months and now the nation's unemployment rate is at its highest point of the year, 9.2%. president obama expressed frustration with the bleak employment picture. >> today's job report confirms what most americans already know, we still have a long way to go and a lot of work to do. our economy as a whole just isn't producing nearly enough jobs for everybody who is
5:09 am
looking. >> here to break down these new numbers and what they mean is deidre bolten of bloomberg tv. >> hi. >> everyone is characterizing this as a terrible report. the question is what made it such a bad month? >> there's four culprits. manufacturing grew but at less than half the pace of what was expected. we also in prior months had begun to see some signs of life as far as business, professional services so we're talking about accountants, talking about lawyers, engineers, they a few months ago were finding jobs so they still found jobs this past month but just again at a slower rate. construction, that's not breaking news. the housing market still is a big drag on the economy. you had almost no jobs growth there but gornment, this was the weak spot, eight straight months of declines. you have governments at local levels, state levels trying to close the budget gaps. easiest way to let people go. >> we're seeing 39,000 government jobs were lost in the month of june.
5:10 am
that's something we expect to see continue as well and a lot of local governments are shutting down, in minnesota for example those people can collect unemployment benefits starting in july, you might see them in new numbers. >> it's just part of this larger picture. if you and i are working, making less than we had already made a few years ago we pay less income tax or the value of our house is less so we pay less tax on our house, all of that adds up. >> exactly and it's less for the communal pie and people need to take more out of it, at the same time. in terms of where we're going, this is the worst unemployment rate so far this year. does this mean the recovery has really stalled in can we say that yet? >> i think if there's one thing to take away from the report the recovery is going to take longer than anybody expected. it's the worst this year, it's true. 29th month in a row we've seen unemployment above 8%, that hasn't happened since the '30s, that puts it in context. the president just said, you
5:11 am
played that clip it's going to take a long time. warren buffett on our show yesterday on bloomberg said i'm not looking for a second recovery but i don't know how fast this recovery is going to take. >> and it's been taking longer than lawmakers would like to see. we had one round of stimulus already and you heard the president talking yesterday as you bring up talking about what it's going to take down the road. what do you think washington ultimately is going to do about all of this? >> it's hard to say. this is an election year, coming into election season for president obama and seems like a lot of the powder that they were keeping dry, it's already been used. we've seen the fed intervene twice with two big problems. it's not entirely clear. the one silver kleining is corporate america. they do have cash on the balance sheets, they have the money to hire but it's now a question of confidence. if you're the ceo of a company, rebecca, and you think you're going to have to lay off people a year or two from now it will make you hesitate before you
5:12 am
bring on any new workers. >> the $2 trillion is what you're hoping america will spend on hiring. deidra, thanks for being with us. coming up in the next half hour we'll have a job summit with advice from the experts on how to find work in these very tough economic times. now here's russ. >> rebecca, thank you very much. the bleak job numbers are adding with a heightened sense of urgency surrounding debt limit talks in washington. president obama is expected to meet with congressional leaders tomorrow night at the white house. whit johnson is there at the white house this morning. whit good morning to you. >> reporter: russ good morning to you. in the meeting tomorrow, president obama wants everyone to come armed with their bottom lines. democrats and republicans are still far, far in any deal on the debt limit, sure to inflict pain on both parts. >> the american people sent us here to do the right thing, not for party but for country, so we're going to work together to get things done on their behalf. >> reporter: but in order to get things done, a final deal must
5:13 am
pass congress, where political rhetoric widened the divide. the president's quest to reduce deficits by up to $4 trillion will require courting members of his own party. >> we are not going to reduce the deficit or subsidize tax cuts for the rich on the backs of america's seniors and working families. >> reporter: friday the president held a private meeting with house minority leader nancy pelosi. democrats are growing increasingly uneasy over statements from president obama that changes to entitlement programs like social security, medicare and medicaid are on the table. republicans welcome the discussion but so far, aren't budging on white house demands to increase taxes on the wealthy. >> tax hikes on families and job creators only make things worse. >> reporter: the entrenched positions mean both parties stand to lose political points should there be a compromise but without one americans would lose the most. >> i'm ready to roll up my
5:14 am
sleeves in the next several weeks and months. both parties are ready to do so as well. >> reporter: staffers are ready to work up to the next meeting. all sides are ready for progress but few aret expecting a deal then. >> whit johnson, thanks a lot. for more perspective on how any budget compromise will be ready, david vitter joins us. >> good morning. >> are you encouraged president obama says severing on the table? >> i was encouraged and i was in a meeting with the speaker thursday where he gave an update about the discussion and it seemed to be more positive than a week or ten days before that. the sides are quite far apart still but it was a positive discussion. they're getting together again sunday. >> sunday at 6:00. in that spirit of compromise as
5:15 am
we heard from whit, democrats want to raise taxes on the wealthy, something we heard from senator boehner, republicans are vehemently against. do you see any movement at all on your side on this issue? >> there's a possibility about revenue, revenue through growth, revenue through tax reform and tax simplification which could produce real growth and when you grow the economy, which we desperately need, we just heard about these horrible unemployment figures, you also produce more revenue so i think that is the key area where we should focus. >> it is july 8th, the deal has to be cut, some say by july 22nd, august 2nd is the deadline. how optimistic are you that a deal can be reached by that time? >> it's a 50/50 proposition. i hope everybody goes into the meeting and discussion sunday with no absolutes or preconceived notions, but we need the right policy to produce growth, a better economy and deficit reduction. a lot of conservatives like me
5:16 am
are very much against significant tax hikes because it's going to do the opposite and obviously we want unemployment to go down, not up even further. >> is that your biggest concern, the tax hikes? >> it is my biggest concern, because i think it would stifle any recovery, it would increase unemployment yet more, which is horrible in and of itself but also would kill the prospects of deficit reduction. we need growth and prosperity for deficit reduction as we as cuts in spending. >> let's talk about the way americans are thinking right now. politicians are not high on the list of many americans these days. if a deal is not cut, don't both sides stand to lose a whole lot politically? >> i think that's true and certainly nobody wants to go past a true deadline about the debt limit. i don't think august 2nd is absolutely set in stone. the world doesn't end the next day but certainly sometime soon after that serious consequences would follow. >> what advice would you have for your colleagues going to
5:17 am
that meeting tomorrow night? >> to be imaginative, to lay out the case strongly about why we need growth, and growth can produce more revenue, new revenue, that's an important part of the solution but that's a whole lot different than just hiking up taxes on folks. >> senator david vitter joining us from new orleans today, we thank you so much. have a good saturday. for the rest of this morning's headlines we go that-a-way, betty nguyen. >> not too far off. good morning to you at home. two u.s. toldiers were killed in afghanistan this morning after they were shot by an afghan intelligence agency. the americans were part of a nato reconstruction team in a province 60 miles north of kabul the capital. the afghan agent reportedly got into the argument with the soldiers as the convoy passed their house. astronauts aboard the space
5:18 am
shuttle "atlantis" will spend their first day checking the shuttle's heat shields from liftoff. good morning, mark. >> reporter: it's hard to imagine the shuttle as a museum piece but after this mission that's exactly what it's going to become after one last trip to resupply the space station. with one final startling burst of power, "atlantis" reached for the heavens and history. >> from the shoulders of space shuttle, america will continue the dream. >> reporter: the last launch for the shuttle, the last space coast spectacular. chris bell's family was awed. >> i know how much enjoyment, how much excitement i got just seeing it launch on television and going to space camp and being a part growing up of that and i know this is something that at least the two boys are going to remember. >> reporter: "atlantis" left to a crowd of sentimental and
5:19 am
speculation. what's next for nasa but for now -- >> we're not ready to look back or forward. we still have this mission to complete so we're going to stay focused on the mission at hand. >> reporter: that mission, rendezvous with the space station, deliver five tons of equipment and supplies and bring home the crew safely. one last time the shuttle made people look up. >> one of the most amazing things i have ever seen in my entire life. >> reporter: as amazing on its 135th launch as it was in its first. >> achieve something not achievable by any other country or vehicle absolutely. 'done a phenomenal job. >> reporter: this mission will go on for 12 days, maybe 13. when "atlantis" comes home, it will stay home. betty? >> indeed it will. mark strassmann in houston thank you. in other news, casey anthony refused a prison visit by her mother last night in what would have been the first communication with her parents since she was acquitted of
5:20 am
murdering her daughter. casey must spend another eight days in jail and will be released next sunday. she was convicted of lying to police but received credit for time served and good behavior. last night with the boston red sox threatening to add to a 10-3 lead baltimore's kevin gregg threw a series of pitches to david ortiz setting the stage for a near brawl. tension eventually erupted after the baltimore pitcher yelled for ortiz to run to first base, goodness. believe it or not, no punches connected, boston beat baltimore 10-3. 20 minutes past the hour. lonnie i'm not going to brawl with you but safe to say we want a nice forecast for the weekend. >> we'll deliver for a good portion of the country. big papi connects though. in terms of the weather headlines we talked about a brawl. mother nature brawling. certain parts of the country, others will be rumbling in the
5:21 am
midwest. thunderstorms continue for the plains. others sizzling out there. take a look at the actual air temperatures from dodge city, kansas to lawton, oklahoma, to dallas, texas, the thermometer will be reading 95 to 110 degrees. heat alerts in effect for the entire area. the temperature can feel like 116. if you take a look at the satellite and radar picture, the strong storms will make their way into the western great lakes. for the eastern half of the country we dealt with a cold front yesterday, now basically offshore, still clips portions of maine and the southern tier will be clipping portions of the southeast coast, we expect to see storms firing up later on in the day around florida. you ask for a nice forecast and for a good portion of the country we're doing okay out there for your saturday. that's a quick look at the national picture. here's a close look at the weather for your weekend.

5:27 am
so we all watched the shuttle launch yesterday for the final time here at cbs news. i love that moment where you saw the little boy watching as the shuttle lifted off into the air, it was a pretty cool moment but you have seen in your career, russ, a number of these. >> i've never seen one in person and the only person here is mr. quinn here. >> what was it like? >> i worked down for a tv station in miami, florida south florida and i had a chance to see two, as a matter of fact. one just in the regular parking lot of the canaveral national seashore, which is where just the regular crowd assembles, that had a bigger impact on me, they get you closer, the journalists get closer but when you're in that crowd a lot of people carry signs and they have
5:28 am
all of the signs wishing them luck, clearly the astronauts are not going to see them. a lot of people cry, it's incredibly quiet, a lot of anticipation, and the main engines ignite. >> the ground shakes? >> it's about 14 seconds after the main engines ignite you feel the sound wave, you feel it in your chest. boom, boom, vibrating out, you feel that and everyone just, then it's just awe, you watch this thing take off and it's so funny, people watch it until literally it disappears. >> wow. >> i think especially after "challenger" we watch holding our breath just making sure that it gets into orbit safely. >> you forget how dangerous it is. >> it was routine. >> it's become commonplace. this is the height of technology and one little thing goes wrong. they halted this at what, 31 seconds. >> 31 seconds. i thought oh my goodness this is not going to happen. >> i'm sad about this being the last time. the program has been incredible. >> never say never. >> that is true.
5:29 am
president obama said we want to go to mars. >> the sky is not the limit.,,,,
5:30 am
welcome back to "the early show," everyone, in new york city, we come to you live. i'm rebecca jarvis. >> and i'm russ mitchell. >> we are looking at the nation's unemployment picture which we've been telling you went from bad to worse last month. the jobless rate, was up. we're goinging to give advice on how to find employment. there's advice for all, coming
5:31 am
up in a few moments. first this morning the hacking scandal surrounding rupert murdoch's tabloid paper in london. elizabeth palmer is in london with the latest. good morning. >> good morning, russ. there are fresh revelations this morning. sky news is reporting that the premises of the "news of the world" are about to be designated a crime scene and "the goordian" newspaper alleges that millions of e-mails have been deleted from the company account, e-mails that would have been crucial to a police investigation. we do know that since yesterday noon, three people have been arrested. clive goodman once the paper's royal editor, another man believed to be a private investigator and andy colson who became the british prime minister's press adviser, he was allowed to go home again after questioning. >> there's an awful lot i'd like to say but i can't.
5:32 am
>> reporter: the "news of the world's o hat will be another very, very difficult moment for the company. >> reporter: back in 2005, prince william's aides realized that "the news of the world" must have learned some personal details by hacking into his voice mails. slowly it emerged that other celebrities had been hit, but the larger investigation stalled. yesterday britain's prime minister said it wasn't just foot dragging by the police. >> the truth is, to coin a phrase, we've all been in this
5:33 am
together, the press, the politicians and leaders of all the passes, yes, including me. >> reporter: while "the news of the world" will print its last edition tomorrow, the fallout from this affair has just begun. on the business side, a multibillion-dollar takeover bid by the murdoch family of a huge satellite television operation here in britain has already been delayed and it could be in serious trouble. russ? >> elizabeth palmer in london, thank you. and joining us from london is steve eulitz and mark lewis, lawyer for the family of 13-year-old milly dowler whose phone was hacked after her murder, the incident that ignited the scandal. nothing is going to bring back their little girl but is the dowler family getting any satisfaction by the fact that "news of the world" is closing? >> there's no really satisfaction. it was cruelty upon cruelty that the announcement of "news of the
5:34 am
world" was ceasing without them being warned about this, they tended to think or they did think that somehow they would never get to the truth that there would be attempts to close the paper, to put their minds at rest about that but nowhere has anybody bothered to think of the effect on the victims, in particular the dowler family. >> what would the dowler family like to see in the investigation? >> they want to get to the truth of the whole thing. they want to know what happened and who did it, what they did. what happened with the voice mail is that the voice mailbox becomes full so when milly dowler went missing, people were phoning up, family and friends leaving messages, police please phone home, please phone up. it was sorry you can't leave a message anymore and then there was a moment that you could suddenly leave a message, the parents, the families, friends were thinking milly must be alive and that wasn't true, and
5:35 am
that was the ultimate cruelty. >> i see. steve, let me bring you in. the situations hit very close to british prime minister david cameron. what do you think? potentially how damaging could this be to his government? >> well, i mean first of all i think it's worth a point expressing the fact they have an emergency debate in the commons about this on wednesday and it was said by a number of commentators here for the first time in 30 years the british political establishment was standing up to rupert murdoch so there's been a definite decisive proper shift in the balance between the various forces at play here. david cameron personally the fact that he hired a former "news of the world" editor, andy colson arrested yesterday, in knowledge of because the paper has broken the story, approached cameron's aides and said be careful before you hire him because he's in this up to his neck, having hired him under
5:36 am
those circumstances leaves david cameron at least with poor judgment. >> talking about the "wall street journal" and fox news and "the new york post," could there be repercussions on this side of the pond from what's happening over there? >> isn't it always the way, you're the experts of watergate, the coverup is usually worse than the crime. what went on here is scandalous but it was five or ten years ago and there's no question it shouldn't have happened. what is really toxic for news international and news corporation is the way they handled it and of course it extends over there. there's no suggestion this sort of thing would happen over there, not a hint of it. the reason it finds its way over there is because of the way the company handled it, they denied it, covered it up, put their hands up and now everyone is playing catch up. >> steve and mark, joining from us london, we thank you very
5:37 am
much for joining us this morning. >> you're welcome. >> thank you. mr. lonnie quinn with another check of the weather. >> good morning to you russ, good morning, everybody. right to the weather headlines. let's keep it simple. there will be rain for portions of florida. there will also be rain for portions of maine and believe it or not that's all the same cold front affecting the entire east coast yesterday. speaking of rain, there's been too much rain in the dakotas. you're going to catch a little bit of a break today but the rivers are still flooding from bismarck to houron to sioux cit. some of you six feet above flood stage. snow continues to melt north of you, adds to the runoff and more rain is expected again, not so much today, today you catch a little bit of a break, your strong storms from yesterday make their way through the midwest, places around the western great lakes are going to get hit hard with good storms and take a look at the east coast, same front there it is around maine stretching down to portions of florida. that's a quick look at the
5:38 am

we are back with our jobs summit, john challenger, nicole williams here to answer your questions. the next question from elgers. >> good morning, i don't believe in selling myself short. do you feel it might be necessary to dumb down my resume in order to not appear overqualified? >> alison, no. don't dumb down. no. i get the overqualified thing. what you want to do is be very specific, so the job that you're applying to, while you may have years of experience, i want you to take specifically what experiences, what skill sets, what opportunities you've had that speak to this specific job, so that it's not a five-page resume, i'm certain you have lots of qualifications, lots of experience. i want you to just bring it all down, make it really tight, and make it very specific to the job that you're actually pursue so long that they don't perceive you as being this person who is
5:50 am
overqualified which can sometimes mean just there's too much information here. >> right, okay. >> what do you say back to them, though, if they tell you we think you're too qualified and alison says this is a great thing that i'm too qualified. what do you say back? >> absolutely and do you, you talk about what specific experiences you have. sometimes overqualified can look like really what the employer is thinking you're potentially too expen expensive, you have so much experience in the world of work that you're going to ask for a huge salary. you want to make it clear you understand what the compensation range is in this particular position or they're afraid you're going to think like you are too good for this job. you want to communicate the fact that you are willing and able to dig in. you're open to this opportunity. you'd be excited, delighted to have it and willing to be compensated in this range. you're going to just relieve them of any fear by virtue of getting th out there. >> ashley has a question. >> hi. i've been pursuing my dream job and i feel like it's very
5:51 am
difficult to begin a career at an organization such as the united nations. do you have any advice as to when i should stop looking and start pursuing other organizations? >> don't give up your dream job. you have a right to find a job and do work in your career that you're going to really like doing, that fits what you want. at the same time don't just look for the perfect job at one organization. look for jobs that would enhance your resume to the united nations, international jobs, jobs at other non-profits and go out and get involved in organizations, say that, council on global relations, asian society, go to events, meet people where other united nations workers go, people care about foreign affairs and get involved in that world, that will help you move in that direction. >> i see you shaking your head yes. >> i'm agreeing 100%, i think it's valuable. >> todd obulsky, also have a
5:52 am
question. >> good morning. sometimes i think the gap in my resume might make me look a bit damaged to employers so i want them to know what you thought about that and also if you had any advice on coping with long-term job search. >> how long have you been looking, todd? >> 20 months. >> 20 months. >> that's a long time. >> yes, of course you're going to feel burned out 20 months later. you really do need to ensure that you are connected to people not only people who are unemployed, so that you feel like this isn't just about me, which is true. it's also being connected to people who are employed, so that you have motivation, so that you're in the field. what happens after a long period of time is your confidence level starts to wane and as far as the gap is concerned, nowadays employers are accustomed to seeing a gap. you want a resume that's more functionally oriented versus chronologically oriented so that isn't what pops out at first but don't be afraid of that fact, but when you're either in your cover letter or interview, you
5:53 am
want to be clear this is what i did during this gap time to enhance my skill base and be a better more viable candidate for this job. >> we have to end it there, but we appreciate all of you being with us, great advice from both of you. all of these people are in linkedin. thanks for everyone and best of luck to all of you with your search. coming up later, betty ford we're going to look at her impact here on "the early show" on cbs. hemicals. new all free clear oxi-active. a free clear detergent that's tough on stains and gentle on skin. try new all free clear oxi-active. discover aveeno positively radiant tinted moisturizers with scientifically proven soy complex and natural minerals. give you sheer coverage instantly, then go on to even skin tone in four weeks. aveeno tinted moisturizers.

6:15 am
changed the way americans today deal with addiction is dr. jennifer hartstein, psychology and "early show" contributor. always great to have you with us. >> good morning. >> for those who don't know about betty ford she has an incredible history. tell us about her relationship with addiction. >> she had an amazingly long history of addiction. started in 1964 following an injury in her neck, she had a nerve pinched and really impacted her ability to move, she was hospitalized for a period of time. she started on valium. that addiction lasted until 1978, it was 14 years she had it in a time period of addiction and she then as a person in the media and in the politics did a lot of social drinking, never really thought it was a problem and it wasn't until they left the white house that it became even more of a problem and became more noticeable to her, to her family and they confronted her and said there really is a problem, pain killers, alcohol, they exacerbate each other, she started to have more and more difficulty and then she went
6:16 am
into treatment in about 1978 and it was out of her own experience and treatment and the lack of real treatment centers aimed at women that the betty ford center was developed. >> she spoke openly and candidly about all of this. how did that change the way people like yourself even look at addiction and dealing with it? >> it really allowed people to bring this into conversation. she was born and grew up in a time when you didn't talk about mental illness, you didn't talk about addiction, everything happened behind closed doors. she was a public figure talking about her own struggle and saying it's okay to have the struggle, okay to ask for help and you can live a successful, full enriched life even though these are problems you are experiencing. >> there is and can still be a stigma attached to addiction depending on who you talk to in particular those who haven't necessarily dealt with or seen it in their own lives. what do you as a doctor recommend for those who are dealing with it and those who don't know anything about it necessarily? >> the first thing we have to go back and remember is that addiction is a disease, like hart disease, like diabetes,
6:17 am
like parkinson's, it's not something that everyone can say oh, yeah, i can avoid that glass of alcohol or can avoid that pill. it's really a problem and a disease we have to recognize that needs treatment and if people can say it's not a choice, then that will help everybody around. >> what's really difficult when you listen to betty ford's story this started where she was being treated, valium was the solution to her problem at the time. >> right. >> you probably see that as well in your practice. >> oftentimes it starts with treatment for some injury and at that time we didn't have the same tired of moderation and ability to follow like we do now so the doctors are much more aware of what they're giving out. then you could take 20 a day and they'd give you another prescription and she was taking upwards of 20 a day. now we have better ability to follow it and monitor how people are taking it. so we have to be aware of if you're being treated for that, doctors need to ask you how much you're taking, you need to ask for help.
6:18 am
oftentimes mental health treatment goes in conjunction with chronic pain and/or with life-threatening illness or some sort of injury. then you can deal with the underlying psychiatric issues as well as the pain and hopefully not lead to addiction. >> such a good point, dr. jennifer thanks so much for being with us. we appreciate it. have a nice weekend. coming up next prince william and wife catherine get the rile we all want our kids to eat their vegetables, but they'd rather they disappear. mott's medleys has two total fruit and veggie servings
