Opioid addiction is the great current American public health crisis of our time.
As part of a nationwide push to get the right treatment options in the hands of frontline health workers, Summit Community Care Clinic has received the tools and training they need to launch a medication-assisted treatment program, which uses medication during opiate withdrawal therapy to wean recovering users off of the powerfully addictive painkillers.
According to government estimates, a record 72,000 Americans died in 2017 alone from overdoses, with two-thirds of those overdoses blamed on opioids. Colorado also hit a record in 2017 with over 1,000 opioid deaths.
