The LVMC Emergency Department provides bridge prescriptions of Suboxone for individuals with opioid use disorders that desire recovery. Depending on the patient’s last use and severity of symptoms, patients will be either treated with a dose of Buprenorphine in the hospital or written a prescription with instructions on how to self-start from home, microdose/cross taper and avoid precipitated withdrawal. Due to the high demand of MAT services and wait times to be seen, LVMC ED providers write a two- to three-week Bridge Suboxone prescription for patients that want to start MAT.

Patients are educated on outpatient options available in the Lompoc area for continued MAT management and encouraged to make an appointment with a provider as soon as possible.

Press Release: LGBTQ+ Pride Month
June 2022

June is designated as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Pride Month to remember the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan and celebrate this milestone for the LGBTQ+ population in America. Although memorials are held during this month for those members of the community who have been lost to hate crimes or HIV/AIDS, the spirit of Pride is celebratory. And while the last Sunday of the month was originally designated as the day of celebration, communities around the country eventually chose various days within June to celebrate which led to the variety of events, both celebratory and awareness-focused, that are now held throughout the month. Learn more at on the Library of Congress’s website.

Events: Attend Pacific Pride Festival for FREE which is hosted by Pacific Pride Foundation will be this August 27 at Chase Palm Park.

Press Release: National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week (NDAFW)
March 21-27, 2022

About NDAFW
National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week®, or NDAFW, is an annual, week-long, health observance that inspires dialogue about the science of drug use and addiction among youth. It provides an opportunity to bring together scientists, students, educators, healthcare providers, and community partners—to help advance the science, so that we can improve the prevention and awareness of substance misuse in our own communities and nationwide. It was launched in 2010 by scientists at the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) to stimulate educational events in communities so teens can learn what science has taught us about drug use and addiction. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism became a partner in 2016, and alcohol has been added as a topic area for the week. NIDA and NIAAA are part of the National Institutes of Health, and work with leading organizations, media outlets, and other Government agencies to spread the word about NDAFW.

Program components include early recovery issues; pregnancy and parenting skills; and nutrition and exercise education. Clients assessed as having an opioid use disorder who are interested in Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) will be referred to a partnering clinic or physician for further assessment. Adults can then enroll in the program to help support their recovery while receiving MAT.
