U.S. Surgeon General chooses Man Alive/Lane Treatment Center as first stop on nationwide tour

Murthy’s trip to Baltimore was the first leg of a national tour designed to spur a nationwide discussion on America’s opioid crisis. He lauded Baltimore for its cutting-edge work on the issue.

“We need more facilities like this that can take a comprehensive approach to addiction, which can understand addiction is not something that you treat and move on from,” Murthy said. “It is a chronic illness, which means we need ongoing long-term follow-up.”
