FAMILY HEALTHCARE | ST. GEORGE, UTAH
Understanding that opioid use disorder is a chronic condition helps us approach this disease in a compassionate, patient-centered, and supportive manner. We are actively partnering with our Mental Health Authority (meeting at least weekly), our justice system, Intermountain’s Maternal Fetal Medicine group, and other partners in an effort to stretch resources, provide appropriate patient support, and just gain a better understanding of the barriers patients who have this disease encounter. This is not easy work, but it is critical for the health of our patients and our communities.
