Great to attend and speak at the George Mason Conference on eradicating the Opioid epidemic. Governor Northam (D) and Congresswoman Comstock (R) both spoke through the lens of recovery and prevention of this chronic disease. Refreshing that there is bipartisan belief that this will not be solved through the criminal justice system. Sad but necessary that we are now distributing naloxone to libraries! Two comments why do we focus on substances and not the underlying mental health and how do we use technology to break down the silo’s in treatment and prevention ?
