This limited series will investigate how the nation’s opioid epidemic has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the course of this series, we will hear from a harm reductionist, an addiction medicine physician, a Denver Police narcotics sergeant and two people currently in recovery.
Unfortunately, the opioid epidemic and the COVID-19 pandemic are likely not going anywhere soon. Emergency Medical Minute remains committed to providing education to help combat these health crises.
In this episode, we talk to Dr. Steven Young — board certified emergency physician and addiction medicine physician — to discover how his clinic has had to adapt and overcome the challenges presented by COVID.
