Case 1: Withdrawal Treatment for Pregnant Patient
A 31-year-old F, 30 weeks pregnant, is found unconscious behind an abandoned house. She has had limited prenatal care and reportedly been using substantial amounts of ‘street Xanax,” fentanyl, alcohol and cocaine. She is intubated for airway and breathing support and is waking up agitated, requiring “huge doses of sedatives.” The Intensivists and OB are asking for assistance managing her dependence, withdrawal and sedation requirements.

Case 2: Charismatic but Challenging
An 18-year-old, ‘charismatic but challenging’, patient from rural part of New York with polysubstance dependence that an outpatient treatment program is attempting to help ‘stabilize’ during COVID19.

Case 3: Pre-Med ‘Psychonaut’ with OUD
A 30-year-old ‘pre-med’ student and self-described (semi) former ‘psychonaut’ self refers to an outpatient clinic to start buprenorphine because his “opioid use is getting out of hand.”
