    Dr. Michelle Lofwall speaks with a patient about opioid addiction treatment.

Long wait times for an appointment are the difference between life and death for people with an addiction.

Experts from the University of Kentucky First Bridge Clinic will be at the 2019 Rx Drug Abuse and Heroin Summit discussing the challenges and successes of their first year.
