About 200 medical professionals will get training Saturday to make opioid addiction treatment more accessible for those who need it. Demand is high for medication-assisted treatment. But, according to the Ohio Department of Health, just 2 percent of Ohio doctors are able to prescribe addiction treatment drug buprenorphine, the main ingredient in Suboxone. As a result, addicts desperate to get off heroin can be forced into buying it on the black market. Or they have to spend months on wait lists, a delay that can mean the difference between life and death. More training allows more medical professionals, such as primary care doctors, to be involved in curbing the opioid epidemic.
