Last quote by Leana Wen

In the ER, people will often come in seeking help for their addiction. But we will tell them that, unfortunately, we're unable to get them into a treatment slot for three weeks or a month. … That individual, if they're unable to get treatment that day at the time that they're requesting, may have no other choice but to go out and use drugs [to avoid withdrawal] and maybe overdose and die.feedback
