Livingwell Preventive Medicine offers Telemedicine Services to support patients that are unable to access addiction services in their local communities.
Yesterday, the White House declared the opioid epidemic a “public health emergency“. The preliminary figures from the National Center for Health Statistics suggest that there were more than 64,000 drug overdose deaths in 2016. In 2015, over 33,000 Americans died from opioid overdose. The crisis is well known at this time, with every demographic being affected.
One of the recommendations given as part of the emergency declaration was a call for increased access to telemedicine services, allowing patients in remote locations, or living in communities with doctor shortages, to access Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT).
Fortunately, Livingwell Preventive Medicine is already helping people throughout Colorado access these life saving treatments.
If you would like to learn more about medication assisted treatments like Suboxone, Naltrexone, and Vivitrol, that are proven to help people stay in recovery longer, and reduce overdose deaths, please call or email our office.
