10,000 patients connected
to treatment through the
Patient/Physician Matching System*
The matching system is for people unable to find a certified
physician from the locator or one that accepts their insurance
or can also treat any co-occurring disorders. Once registered,
the anonymous patient information is sent to participating
physicians in the area for review and many patients are then
contacted within minutes. Unfortunately having 1,800 participating
physicians there are still areas of the country where patients are
seeking this lifesaving treatment but cannot find a physician
willing to treat them. Spokane, WA and all of Vermont are two such places where patients’ needs continue to go unmet.
When we notice areas where there is an abundance of patients unable to find treatment, we send out
this postcard to certified physicians asking for their participation, and urging them to help. We are also
working with local advocacy groups to try and get more physicians involved.
