Dr. Linda Courey - Detox Changes

Addiction Services is replacing six counselor attendant positions with other health care workers. Four are in withdrawal management (or detox) at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital. One position is in Opiate Recovery (or the methadone program) and the other is in the Day program. The Authority says the changes will enhance the quality and safety of addiction treatment. Dr. Linda Courey is head of Addiction Services and Mental Health, she spoke with CBC's Joan Weeks about the change.
