'You need to be brave': expert calls on government to fund prescription opioids (Dr. Eugenia Oviedo-Joekes)
Opioid researcher Eugenia Oviedo-Joekes is calling on the provincial government to fund substitution therapy to stop the overdose crisis.
Oviedo-Joekes has been working to help addicts for 15 years. Her message to politicians is to fund what she believes works.
“You need to be brave, and you need to just do it. This is the moment where you need to show that you're truly seeing what is going on,” she said.
