Avera Medical Minute: How to recognize and prevent overdose

Malia Holbeck, a manager with Avera Inpatient Behavioral Health Services, talks about overdose resources and how to overcome the stigma.

Holbeck shared about Emily’s Hope and what the organization offers.

“We’ve been able to partner with Emily’s Hope, which has been a great resource for our patients who are seeking help. Oftentimes, treatment can have financial costs that go along with that, that can be a barrier for people to want to enter into treatment. So Emily’s Hope was really wanting to be able to find a way to be able to reduce those barriers for people to get access to treatment, providing some financial assistance that would offset that cost of being able to get into treatment.”
