    “Tom’s work provides a fantasy escape for patients to lose themselves in. It will provide a time of self forgetfulness in which one breathes solely in the world of color and art. A total immersive world.
    A total immersive world. Our hope is that it will provide an alternative to the devastating long term effects of opioid use.
