HealthConnections: Treating Opioid Addiction

Aug 30, 2019

On previous editions of HealthConnections, we've talked about the effect opioid abuse has on communities and individuals. In this edition of the show, we talk about treatment. Dr. Sharon Davis, of the University of Tennessee College of Nursing, is an expert on addiction. She discusses addiction from a physiological perspective, and outlines emergency and long-term treatment options. Dr. Davis will also tell us why many Tennessee communities can't provide some of the robust treatments that are available.
