The First State Opens New Addiction Treatment Centers
Delaware is embracing a Centers of Excellence model to address opioid addiction, with the help of a $2 million boost in funding from the federal government.
As reported by Delaware Online, the state Department of Health and Social Services is looking to implement a “Centers of Excellence” model – three community hubs located throughout the state that will use peer recovery coaches to offer treatment and services to those struggling with addiction who seek help.
These services will include connecting people to treatment, assisting them with navigating the health care system and addressing any co-occurring mental health issues.
“We must reduce the harm caused by this horrific epidemic,” said Dr. Kara Odom Walker, secretary of the state health department. “Through the Centers of Excellence model approach, our goal is to offer care to individuals suffering from opioid addiction that is high-quality, comprehensive, coordinated, evidence-based and person-centered. The treatment hubs will not only care for the individual’s treatment needs, but also address the social determinants of health that impact a patient’s overall health and treatment outcomes.”
