the influx of patients presenting with substance abuse disorders

You run a small community-based hospital and were awarded a 2 million dollar grant to start a program in the emergency room department. The program would address the influx of patients presenting with substance abuse disorders. Answer:
Who would you want on staff? What positions would you create? Why? What type of emergency care would you want in your emergency department? (examples could be: detoxification protocol? Medication-Assisted Treatment induction?) How would you educate your staff? What would be the strengths of this plan? What type of barriers would you anticipate? why would it be effective.
