USA. Emergency Department Responses to Addiction - A Critical Intervention Point  (Video)

A hospital’s Emergency Department is often the only place a patient with substance use disorder receives healthcare. In some instances, this will be for an overdose, and in other cases it may be for an injury or infection related to their substance use. This makes the hospital a critical intervention point for engaging people with substance use disorders and linking them to treatment. (Addiction Policy Forum, USA, 25.09.2018, Video, 19:44)
