Zack Gray: The Opioid Crises Treatment Gap

With Zack Gray, Co-founder & CEO, Ophelia

How is it that opioid overdose is the number one cause of death for Americans under 50, but over 80% of people struggling with opioid addiction can’t get access to care?

Zack Gray calls this the treatment gap. To him, the problem isn’t a lack of quality treatment but a lack of access to treatment.  Zack is the Co-founder & CEO at Ophelia. His company places evidence-based care in the hands of those who need it the most. By lowering costs and bringing drug rehab to patients’ homes, Zack is closing the treatment gap through telemedicine.

In this episode, Zack discusses his personal journey to addiction treatment and a transformative solution to the country’s ongoing opioid crisis.
