Marybeth Redmond’s  latest commentary aired on Vermont Public Radio this evening!  She speaks in favor of Governor Shumlin’s proposal for an integrated addictions treatment system statewide.

“Vermont has long been in need of an integrated system for addictions treatment, where doctors, clinicians, caseworkers and databases are all coordinating. Vermonters need a model of care that treats chemical-dependency as a chronic disease like diabetes or depression, where daily medication and relapse-management are the norm not the exception.”
