Why we do what we do
Our experts now estimate that50,000-opioid dependent babies are born each year…much more than than the 10,000 originally estimated in the 2018 interview. In partnership with the Opioid Justice Team, Celeste Brustowicz seeks to give a voice to babies with neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) and provide them with a future beyond the opioid epidemic.
Opioid Justice Team is a Medical-Legal Partnership of doctors, attorneys and civic leaders fighting to end our nation’s opioid epidemic by gaining real solutions to the nation’s addiction crisis. What sets our team apart is our commitment to our clients not only to compensate for damages, but to advocate for a comprehensive settlement that will address the root causes of the opioid crisis and eliminate the systematic conditions that allowed it to get to this point. We’re about justice, relief and answers to the short and long-term challenges of America’s unprecedented prescription opioid addiction problem.
