Opioid Center of Excellence
The Wright Center for Community Health is a Commonwealth of Pennsylvania designated Opioid Use Disorder Center of Excellence. Unlike traditional inpatient rehab facilities, we offer recovery services on an outpatient basis without disrupting your life.
We understand that addiction is a lifelong disease that makes recovery a lifelong commitment. No two paths of recovery are the same. Through whole-patient care, we will work with you to ensure you have all the tools you need to reroute the energy of addiction. Through counseling and/or Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT), our team is ready to help in your journey to recovery.
Frequently Asked Questions:
How does an Opioid Center of Excellence work?
Unlike a traditional rehab facility, Centers of Excellence help those in recovery reshape their lives. You will have access to a team of medical providers, addiction specialists, psychiatrists, psychologists, certified recovery specialists and social workers to meet all your needs.
Physical and Behavioral Health Services: As a Center of Excellence, our medical providers are certified by the DEA to provide Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) to treat opioid addiction. We provide outpatient physical and behavioral treatment that fits into daily routines.
Community Engagement: Our community-based care management team will actively work with other community agencies to ensure your needs are being met. Our team also works with inpatient drug and alcohol facilities to help patients transition to outpatient care.
Motivation and Support: We motivate our patients to stay engaged in both physical health and behavioral health services. Our team members also facilitate recovery by helping individuals find stable housing and employment, navigate insurance barriers, and help reestablish family/community relationships. Additionally, our team can link you with community groups and peer support networks.
Who can become a patient of the Center of Excellence?
Patients qualify if they have an Opioid Use Disorder; may have co-occurring behavioral/substance abuse and physical health conditions; need help navigating the healthcare system; and need guidance to stay engaged in treatment in order to avoid relapse
How much does it cost?
Center of Excellence services are offered to patients no matter their insurance status or ability to pay. A sliding fee discount program is available for those who qualify.
What if I’m pregnant?
Our Healthy MOMS (Maternal Opiate Medical Support) pregnancy recovery program, led by our team of supportive medical and behavioral support professionals, is available to expecting and new moms who struggle with Opioid Use Disorder. Our program integrates Medication-Assisted Treatment, paired with counseling and social support, to keep expecting mothers and their babies from experiencing symptoms of withdrawal and help them become the leaders in their recovery. Our collaborative goal is to help moms-to-be find a realistic path of recovery with the assistance of our care team, pre- and post-natal care, education and hope, in a way that works for them.
What is Medication-Assisted Treatment?
Medication-Assisted Treatment, or MAT, is an option for those in recovery that combines social and medical support. The medication works through blocking the receptors in the brain that modern opiates are built to connect to, quelling the urge and impulsions that those in recovery face. As a requirement of our MAT program, you will be connected to a network of providers and community support who regularly check in on their progress and keep them engaged in care.
What do you mean when you say ‘care team’?
Unlike a traditional doctor’s office, The Wright Center functions as a Patient-Centered Medical Home. This means that each patient, no matter the services that they are receiving, belongs to what we call a “care team.” Everyone’s care team will look different depending on their physical, dental and behavioral health needs, and is tailored to ensure the continuity and quality of each patient’s care.
