Pennsylvania is currently experiencing an unprecedented number of heroin, opioid, and substance use deaths. Championed by Governor Tom Wolf and supported by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has answered the federal call to address our national and local opioid crisis through its Opioid Use Disorder Center of Excellence initiative. Forty five Opioid Use Disorder Centers of Excellence have been established across the state, and regionally, resources are in place serve patients in Lackawanna, Luzerne, Susquehanna, Monroe, Wayne and Pike counties.

Centers of Excellence help ensure that people with opioid-related substance use disorder stay in treatment, receive follow-up care and are supported within their communities. Treatment is team-based and “whole person” focused, with the explicit goal of integrating behavioral health and primary care.

When visiting a Center of Excellence, you will find supportive addiction and recovery specialists, social workers and medical providers who can help you break the cycle of addiction and reshape your lifestyle. Every Center of Excellence has their own treatment methods, yet all are tailored to meet the needs of their patients and are intent on helping their community recover.

The Wright Center’s Center of Excellence (COE) is not an inpatient rehab program. Our team is based in Jermyn, Clarks Summit and Scranton positioned to serve over 300 patients in Northeastern PA, regardless of ability to pay.

Addiction is a lifelong disease that makes recovery a lifelong commitment; no two paths of recovery are the same. Through whole-patient care, our team works to ensure that each patient has the tools that they need to reroute the energy of addiction to behaviors that will help them stay well. Whether through counseling alone, or with Medically Assisted Treatment, our team is ready to help patients start life in recovery.

We realize that success in beating addiction is far more than physically staying clean. Unlike a traditional rehab facility which is a short term solution for most, a Center of Excellence helps those in recovery reshape their lifestyle from the comfort of their own community. Getting clean is personal, but we do recover, together.
