The system isn't broken, it's yet to be built: B.C. opioid task force member (Dr. Evan Wood)
A member of B.C.'s provincial task force assigned to curb the opioid crisis says an adequate response system has to be built from the ground up.
Dr. Evan Wood, a member of the task force and the medical director for addiction services with Vancouver Coastal Health, spoke with The Early Edition about what the group has learned so far.
“Oftentimes, I hear people say that the addictions system is broken … Actually the system isn't broken, we need to build a functioning addictions system.”
