The program’s multidisciplinary team includes board-certified addiction medicine specialists, nurses, social workers, behavioral health specialists and certified recovery specialists.

As reported by the CDC earlier this year, 2020 saw the highest number of drug overdose deaths in the U.S. in recorded history. In continuation of the opioid epidemic, and amid the COVID-19 pandemic, more than 93,000 lives were lost due to overdose. This represents a nearly 30 percent increase nationally, and a 17 percent increase in Pennsylvania from 2019.
