Dr. Drew

Driven by current events, "Dr. Drew" on HLN focuses on the human - and human behavior - at the center of the story.

Tonight: Newtown's shadow illuminates social sickness

  • What is causing the increase in horrific mass violence?
  • How do we heal the social ills eating away at our country?
  • Dr. Drew and Dr. Oz one on one
Tonight: Newtown's shadow illuminates social sickness

Connecticut is just the latest and most massive tragedy in our country.  Our society is sick, and the question now is how to fix it.  Dr. Drew and his panel examine mental illness and the glorification of violence in movies, music, and video games.  What are the solutions?

Dr. Mehmet Oz joins Dr. Drew to discuss the physiology of the brain: what happens when there is real mental illness and why is it so hard to understand someone's thinking when they methodically plan and carry out a mass killing?
