Matt knows first-hand the devastating effects of addiction. In active recovery himself for prescription opioid addiction, he knows this is not an issue that can or will be solved by soundbite solutions. His three-point comprehensive plan to address the opioid epidemic includes the following elements:
- Immediate in-patient placement for those seeking assistance;
- Long-term, sober living environments that provide people the time, tools and resources to live out an active recovery; and
- Peer-to-Peer Networks that allow those who have overcome addiction to build a strong network and give back to the community.
