Foundation student Paris Bienert published in Baltimore Sun about social work students providing SUD services

January 30, 2018



The opioid epidemic has deepened into the worst public health disaster in generations. MSW Foundation student Paris Bienert, shown here, wrote an op-ed for the Baltimore Sun about her field placement experience.


Bienert works at an agency that provides substance use disorder services, but she is prohibited by state regulation from providing direct services because Medicaid will not reimburse for SUD services provided by students.
