USA. AMA: Remove barriers to opioid-use disorder treatment

On Monday, U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams, MD, called on his fellow AMA member physicians to work toward eliminating stigma associated with substance-use disorder and removing barriers to treatment. Then, over the course of the next two days, the AMA House of Delegates did just that in voicing support for policies to raise public awareness of, and improve patient access to, substance-use disorder treatments.
