Port Angeles – Another local physicians group is advocating treatment in response to the national epidemic of opioid abuse.
Olympic Medical Physicians (OMP) expects to open services by this fall for people who are addicted to any type of opioid.
We spoke with Psychiatrist, Dr. Joshua Jones, the chief physician officer for Olympic Medical Physicians. He explained how OMP will start a treatment program.
Addiction can sometimes pose an obstacle for people to seek help, but Dr. Jones addressed that issue.
Offered medications will include both Suboxone and Vivitrol, which, when used properly, inhibit the high usually associated with opioids.
