Dr. Holmes was a private pediatric practitioner in Vermont from 1972-2013. To treat his patients who presented with opioid use disorders, within his practice Dr. Holmes received authorization to prescribe buprenorphine. Many dimensions of Vermont’s work on opioid use disorders can be fairly attributed to Dr. Holmes leadership, courage, and caring to take on the disease and help individuals in need of services.
