Opiate dependence, both prescription painkillers and illegal substances, has reached serious and deadly levels in America. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, “Opioids are a class of drugs that include the illegal drug heroin as well as pain relieves available legally by prescription, such as OxyContin, Vicodin, codeine, morphine and many others.” The same report highlighted that 90 American’s die each day from an opiate overdose. In Bardstown, KY, Nelson County, we are introducing our telemedicine suboxone program to help people needing treatment resources.
