Lacktman Comments on Barriers to Using Telemedicine to Treat Opioid Addiction

26 October 2017 Politico Pro News
Partner Nate Lacktman is quoted in a Politico Pro article, “Trump’s call to bolster virtual opioid treatment lacks muscle, critics say,” about ways in which the Trump administration could facilitate the use of telemedicine to treat opioid addiction.

Lacktman said it may be possible for the president to instruct the Drug Enforcement Administration to waive parts of a 2008 law that bars doctors from prescribing anti-addiction medications to patients they haven’t first seen in person. “We really need to see more from the White House on an actual rule or executive order to see what this would look like,” he said.
