"You think about the barriers that people have two getting treatment on an outpatient basis for something like hope you would use disorder number one transportation number two fear of coming into an environment where you could be exposed to the The covert virus number three the ability to get your medication right? And so what Telehealth has done is it has allowed us to meet people where they are. While the National Institutes of Health says there's abundant evidence that medications reduce opioid An estimated 80% of Americans who could benefit from the drugs. Don't receive them case in 800.40% of US counties don't have a license provider for Beaupre, nor fee. The efficacy of which Dr Lloyd himself is a living testament. Lloyd describes his own downward spiral into addiction. There's a saying in recovery circles that one is too many, and 1000 is not enough. And that pretty much sums it up Early in his career. He was driving home feeling stressed and found leftover hydrocodone pills prescribed to him by his dentist. He broke one in half and swallowed it. The time I got home suddenly my life was better. Suddenly this pain that I was dragging around with me and the anxiety and all the things I was worried about, just kind of melted away. Within a few weeks, he was hooked, and the next four years, he says, became a constant pill chase. You know, every day became about Do I have enough to get through this day? Um, I'm going to run out. Where am I going to get it next, but I couldn't quit. Comes every time I didn't have the pill. I got sick and it's all I thought about Lloyd even pocketed extra pills from his own patients by use just accelerated so much and then you know, it becomes hard to find 100 Viking in a day. Not even for me by 2000 for Lloyd says he was no longer able to conceal his addiction from his family and his dad confronted him, he said, Steve, he said, You have a drug problem. I see your daddy. I do. I said I don't know what I'm going to do. I said I'm going to lose my wife going to lose my house. I'm gonna lose my medical license. We'll lose everything. I worked my whole life for And he said, he said ST Know that stuff's going to do you any good if you did at that point, Lloyd said he finally had the will to beat his addiction, but it wasn't enough. He also needed nine injections of buprenorphine at the beginning of detox medication holds cravings at bay. It gives people a fighting chance because people relapse because the cravings it sounds like Telehealth has really lowered the barriers for a lot of folks to get treatment. Specifically medication assistance for opioid addiction. Why were those barriers so hard so high to begin with? A lot of folks look at medication is a crutch. O You're switching one drug for another. And it perplexes me because we don't have problems treating other things that are largely behavioral with medication and example, always uses Type two diabetes. Not do diabetes is largely behavioral. Don't eat right. Don't exercise enough yet we treat it with medication all the time. But unlike other chronic diseases, addiction carry strong stigma and shame. That was embarrassing to me. I felt I don't know. I just felt disgusting. 34 year old Nicole Hernandez is one of Dr Voids patients. She's in recovery from a prescription opioid addiction that began in 2008 after a near fatal car accident. She initially used powerful opioids to manage pain from her multiple injuries. At the worst point of this, How many pills did you need to take Teo dull the pain and to feel Like you were addressing that issue. What depends on which pill but like, let's say of the stronger ones, you know, like 20. Like many others who suffer addiction, Hernandez recalls becoming someone she couldn't recognize. She forge prescriptions and ended up in jail on Lee, then realizing the hold the drugs had on her. Towards the end your pregnancy like you didn't get cravings. Maurine the third trauma, Okay, No. Hernandez is now prescribe Suboxone, which helps lessen her continuous pain, she says without the feeling of addiction and withdrawal. Virtual appointments have kept her from having to visit the clinic. No small comfort for the new mother of twins. It's just been awesome because I never had to leave. My baby side, Lloyd says. Since Telehealth became an option patients rate of showing up for follow up appointment, a key to a long term recovery has doubled, but on its own telehealth is not a silver bullet. Oh, their drawbacks to it, and and I think for the person that tends to isolate Because the opposite of addiction is not recovered. The opposite of addiction is community and relationship. And one of the things that this takes away from us is that relationship..

Drugmakers, distributors said to face federal opioid probe

"How if at all could the law hold drug companies criminally accountable for the opioid crisis we may find out federal prosecutors have begun issuing subpoenas to drug companies we do not know for sure if the pro about of Brooklyn is pointing toward criminal charges we don't now but it raises the question of further jeopardy for an industry that is already faced a giant judgments in civil lawsuits Regina lebel we'll talk us through the facts and the law she's at Georgetown University Law Center here in Washington DC she directs Georgetown's addiction and public policy initiative and she knows about this topic because she was chief of staff of the office of national drug control policy under president Obama thanks for coming by this morning good morning so the US attorney's office is not saying what they're up to of course but six companies acknowledge they receive subpoenas what does that suggest to you well it certainly suggests there's a blank stance of criminal probe there have been other charges that have been brought in the state of Ohio and also in in other parts of New York against drug distributors so this is against distributors and manufacturers which makes it very extensive and we're not as you said we're not really sure what the results of this will be over a long period of time if this is as the distributors are saying merely an investigation to look at practices or if it could result in criminal charges being brought against some of the the the officials in these drug distribution companies it's good to take note of that suggestion that this might be smaller narrower than that it seems but suppose it is bigger suppose it does go that way what criminal laws could conceivably apply to people who were doing a perfectly legal business but maybe in a responsible way right so they're bringing these actions under the controlled substances act which is again how these cases have been brought in other parts of the country over the years the Drug Enforcement Administration has brought administrative actions against many of these same distributors where they have shown willful disregard for drug distribution practices we're so I'll give you an example in Kermit is a small town of four hundred people from two thousand and eight to two thousand eleven there were three point seven million units so doses of the opioid hydrocodone that were distributed to this little pharmacy in a town of four hundred in which state was not this was in West Virginia okay so that's an example of the type of kind of willful disregard for regulatory practices that they could be looking at in this case meaning you guys could look at the numbers and tell that something was happening here and that you were effectively drug dealers pretty much and what they're supposed to do in in best practices they're supposed to tell Drug Enforcement Administration Hey there's something going on here we're gonna take a look at this and work with you to regulate it but that it clearly that's the question here did that happen we've seen over a number of years that that isn't what happened and that's what that's what this could be about common sense would tell us that if millions of doses of drugs are being sold in a town of a few hundred that something odd is going on here but is there a law like specific law for which you could face criminal penalties because you failed to do something there right that's the controlled substances act that's what it does exactly and that law is written in a way that someone could go to jail executive our current executive could go to write right now of course the company's Johnson Johnson to give an example they've already faced huge civil judgments but they've said when it comes to monitoring the flow of drugs whatever they did complied with the law could there be a case to be made there certainly I mean so they they'll look at they'll have to have discovery the look at what what happened if you know if the compliance officers weren't really doing their job if they encourage people to to provide I'd more drugs to the small towns so they'll they'll they'll look at all of this during discovery given the companies are paying are being told to pay billions of dollars in civil settlements is there a point at which this becomes too much so I think from a policy perspective we want to do is make sure this doesn't happen again and will we reach that point when will we reach that point and I think that that's the question before us is incarcerating these directors of these corporations gonna make sure that we change the practices that lead us to this would you do that put somebody in jail I ate out my interest is in changing the policies and practices that got us to where we are today does that mean if that means jail time for someone you do it I think that that's a that's a larger issue my concern is changing marketing
