California HealthCare Foundation Awards Grant For “Medication Assisted Treatment In The Emergency Department”

In January 2017, CHCF awarded to Andrew Herring, MD, and the Levitt Center a grant to increase access to medically assisted treatment of opioid addiction through initiating treatment in the emergency department. The project will pilot a treatment model, proven successful in a controlled academic environment, in an urban region, and share the results in CHCF and peer-reviewed publications.
