                START is in the news!

                International news agency TRT World recently got in touch with Team START about a story they were doing on the opioid epidemic in America. With collaboration across departments, START quickly found a pair of faces to represent our role in treating opioid use disorder and what life before and in recovery is like.

                The news segment begins with Fort Greene Patient Advisory Committee President George Jones, who discusses his life from within the clinic. After a long feature and a story of another man struggling with opioid use disorder not associated with START, the segment cuts to a panel discussion with the host of the show (called The Square and filmed in Times Square) and three experts, one of whom was our Dr. Michelle Soto, V.P. of Medical Services. The panelists have a great, extended discussion about the nature of addiction and its treatment before the show moves on to another topic. You may also remember that this is not Dr. Soto’s first time gracing the news: she was featured in a Spanish-language broadcast on Univision early in 2018, which you can watch here.
