(EMAILWIRE.COM, August 20, 2015 ) West Palm Beach, FL -- As the city of Boston is being faced with an unprecedented crisis of opioid abuse, Governor Charlie Baker has asked Legislature for $27.8 million in extra state spending for treatment and prevention, according to The Boston Globe. The money Governor Baker has asked for would help pay for several recommendations made by Baker's Opioid Working Group, in which he was delegated to in February after over 1,000 people died of drug overdoses in 2014.
If Governor Baker's plan for boosting funds for treatment
The budget will also include a provision for requiring pharmacists to report opioid prescriptions within 24 hours of filing them, instead of using the current practice which allows them up to seven days. This will also help address complaints geared towards the state's Prescription Drug Monitoring Program which is used for checking to determine if patients are "doctor shopping' or obtaining prescriptions from multiple physicians. Other issues with the system such as ease of use will also be addressed when the state hires a vendor to help improve the system.
A medical associate from Drug and Alcohol Rehab Boston comments "I think what Governor Baker is doing is awesome! In my opinion the issue of substance abuse gets swept under the rug a lot these days so it's very impressive to see that our Governor is taking a stand and asking for more funding to help treat and prevent substance abuse. I am confident that with more funding for treatment and prevention initiatives that we will see a significant decline in substance abuse rates and overdose deaths."
