Enterhealth Addresses Over-Prescription of Opiates Helping to Feed America’s Opiate Abuse Epidemic

Enterhealth, a Dallas-based drug and alcohol addiction treatment company, has come out in support of current efforts made this month by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to provide clearer guidelines for doctors and providers for prescribing opioid medications. Enterhealth Chief Medical Strategist Harold Clifton Urschel III, M.D., M.M.A., author of the 2009 New York Times bestseller Healing the Addicted Brain, suggests that the burden for stemming the growing opiate epidemic lies heavily on those providers who are currently overprescribing.
