Congressman Buddy Carter visited NewDay Counseling along with Field representative Hunter Hall. Congressman Carter and Mr. Hall asked a lot of questions, especially related to the national opioid crisis. We discussed how NewDay is doing its part to help treat opioid addiction. We also discussed the need for prevention programs in our schools.
It was a very positive meeting. Our Clinical Director, John Capachione, and our Medical director, Dr Michael Hall, were in attendance – they described our treatment program and suggested ways in which government can help deal with the problem.
I appreciate Congressman Carter’s interest in addiction treatment and his knowledge of the medical/pharmacological aspects.
