Why a Pill Alone Cannot Solve the Opioid Epidemic

Opioid use disorders are increasing in prevalence and the number of Americans who die from opioid overdoses is staggering. Medication Assisted Treatment is an important tool that remains significantly underutilized in the treatment of addiction. However, MAT alone will not solve the opioid epidemic. Using a chronic disease approach, Dr. Manejwala will unpack the opioid epidemic, analyze limitations in our current thinking about this crisis and propose alternatives.
