Last week, Avera and the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation hosted the Sixth Annual Avera and Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation Symposium in downtown Sioux Falls. The symposium addressed the impact of the current opioid epidemic and discuss proven solutions.

In response to the opioid epidemic, Dr. Marvin Seppala and Hazelden Betty Ford developed the Comprehensive Opioid Response with the Twelve Steps (COR-12) program, which combines traditional methods of treatment with Suboxone to help treat those addicted to opioids.

We are joined by Dr. Seppala, a nationally-recognized expert on the opioid crisis, and Dr. Matt Stanley, psychiatrist with Avera and Vice President of Avera's Behavioral Health.
