“As a former treatment provider, I would say that I worked with a lot of people and asked them to make some significant changes in their lives. The truth is that medication-assisted treatment is not an agent unto itself that's the sole treatment. Typically, it's a complement to a larger array of treatments. What we try to find are ways to complement other kinds of supportive services.”
