Today we hear a substance abuse counselor’s perspective on healthcare from Richard Capriola. He joins Rob Oliver on the Perspectives on Healthcare Podcast from Texas. A member of the baby boomer generation, he works primarily with adolescents and young people as both a substance abuse and mental health counselor.
Here are 3 things that stood out from Richard Capriola sharing a substance abuse counselor’s perspective on healthcare:
· Quality healthcare has to involve timely care.
· A patient centered team comprised of multidisciplinary practitioners improves the quality of healthcare
· Addiction is a disease, not a character flaw. As such, it should be treated not punished.
