UPDATE ON METHADONE IN NEW ORLEANS
- AN UPDATE FROM THE SMA IN LA
I just got off the phone with the SMA in LA about the concern for
methadone patients in New Orleans. 1st of all they have been working
really hard to make sure patients are being taken care of. The
pharmacutical companies have donated methadone for the over 200 patients
they have right now...they will be setting up a spot at the Baton Rouge
Hospital for dosing and Kaye told me that her Agency will be realeasing
a press release sometime today. I asked Kay what I could do to help to
get word out and she said it to just pass along the info and about the
press release. I think they have done a fine job.
So...Thanks to the Pharmacutical companies for donating the methadone
for our patients in New Orleans and lets hope and pray that now that
they have the patients,since the evac,that they will be taken care of.
Also,Thanks to the SMA and Kaye,for taking time out of her very busy day
to call me back and talk to me and explain what was going on there. She
told me"Rest assured that everything is being done to make all the
patients are being properly medicated"......she said "Patients" too and
not Clients...I was so tickled icon_wink.gif
Maybe when the press release come out we can post it here at WSM,Hoss?
Just to give a small helping hand to to get that info out???
Lets keep sending our prayers to everyone struck down in this awful loss....
Be Safe Everyone icon_smile.gif
