The Opioid Crisis
Telemedicine and tele-mental health services have emerged as valuable resources for those battling addictions during our country’s expanding opioid crisis. Critical medications for maintaining sobriety can now be prescribed by telehealth or telephone. However, opioid addiction is increasing, in part, because of the isolation and stress created by the COVID-19 pandemic. Those with substance use issues are finding it more difficult to find help due to the closure of facilities and the canceling of programs during the pandemic. Therefore, says Dr. Paul Christo, clinicians need to advocate to their patients that online treatment options are available. Dr Christo hosts SIRIUS XM radio talk show Aches and Gains® and is the author of Aches and Gains, A Comprehensive Guide to Overcoming Your Pain.
