It’s all about Tommie

It’s all about Tommie.

Way back in March we discussed how “The Game has Changed” with Dr. Dr. Gail D’Onofrio and Dr. Josh Elder (https://twitter.com/joshuawelder).  They discussed how emergency departments can be a positive part of the opiate epidemic by offering buprenorphine (suboxone). In this episode we find out how the program is going and how the human element (aka Tommie, our substance use counselor) is helping it succeed.
