In anticipation of the President’s announcement declaring the ongoing opioid epidemic as a public health emergency, the R&J team secured an interview for Robert J. Budsock, CEO and President of Integrity House, with Behavioral Healthcare Executive. Budsock provided his expert opinion on the implications of the declaration as well as the importance of waiving the IMD Medicaid exclusion.
“When things are put into motion to expedite the IMD workarounds on a state-by-state basis, you will see access and resources expanding for addiction treatment,” said Budsock.
For Integrity House, R&J constantly monitors trending topics around the nationwide opioid epidemic, as well as rehabilitation, healthcare, and substance use disorders, to identify opportunities to ensure that Integrity House maintains and expands its position as the leading, comprehensive center for substance abuse disorder treatment and recovery in New Jersey. And we helped to cement Budsock as the leading voice in substance abuse disorder and recovery issues in the state.
