A new Tulsa clinic is ready to fight addiction on the front lines of the opioid epidemic.

Oklahoma State University's new Addiction Medicine Clinic opened its doors Monday at the 12 & 12 Recovery Center near 41st and Skelly.

Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter was at the ribbon-cutting ceremony.

"It’s exactly what the state needs. And I think this is going to be a centerpiece for our effort to get Oklahomans well,” Hunter said.

The new clinic is a partnership between OSU's Health Science Center and 12 & 12 that will expand access to addiction treatment.
