About this Video

While the opioid epidemic rages on, Dr. Sharon Levy is enraged for a different reason: we have the means to treat addiction, but we are not prescribing it. A combination of stigma and unfortunate regulations have made the safe and effective medication inaccessible to all but the few who live in certain cities. Her work with pediatricians’ offices, of all places, demonstrates that thousands of lives could be improved in weeks–if we’d only have the courage to prescribe what works. Sharon Levy is a pediatrician that has evaluated and treated hundreds of teens with substance use disorders over the past two decades. She also works to support her colleagues in primary care to more competently identify and address adolescent substance use.
