NPR included Joshua Lynch in a story on innovative treatment programs that have been developed in some of the nation’s Emergency Departments in order to meet the growing opioid addiction crisis, which has worsened during the pandemic.

It also provides pharmacy vouchers that cover 14 days of medication and Uber vouchers to cover transportation to the clinic through an electronic referral system.
