We have watched the heroin epidemic and associated overdose deaths ravage our clients, families and communities. Wanting to do more to prevent these senseless losses, our York and Dauphin County locations were designated by the Governor’s Office as Opioid Use Disorder Centers of Excellence (OUD-COE).

WHAT’S A CENTER OF EXCELLENCE?

It’s a designated place of recovery, self-improvement and sustained sobriety for individuals using opiates (heroin, morphine, codeine and opium) or opioids (methadone, tramadol, hydrocodone/Vicodin/Lorcet/Lortab, Demerol, Duragesic/fentanyl, oxycodone/OxyContin/Percocet/Percodan, hydromorphone/Dilaudid).

Anyone struggling with an opiate addiction and living in York or Dauphin County can participate in the Opioid Center of Excellence.

Our COE teams consist of Care Navigators and Certified Recovery Specialists/Recovery Support Specialists. They work together to help those struggling with addiction discover and maintain a meaningful recovery.

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS

1ASSESS

Our team will help individuals identify areas of need and provide support and assistance in developing a plan to resolve those needs. Areas of support include housing, childcare, education/vocational skills, employment, transportation, clothing and food, health insurance and recovery-friendly recreation and activities.

2CONNECT

Our team will help link individuals with medical and treatment services including substance abuse treatment, mental health counseling, primary care, medication assisted treatment for addiction, pain management, dental care, eye care and more.

3RECOVER

Our team will provide education, information and support regarding addiction and recovery to individuals struggling with an opioid addiction, as well as to their family members, agencies and community groups.

4SUPPORT

Our team can meet individuals in the community or at their location (including rehabs) to assist in transitioning to the next level of care. We work to help an individual establish a recovery support network in their community as well as reestablish and improve family and significant relationships.

our philosophy

It’s imperative to recognize and address the variety of complex issues that our clients and their loved ones struggle with regularly. Attempting to isolate and treat just one aspect of the issue does little in the long run.

Our approach builds on the interconnected nature of emotional, psychological and physical health as it relates to problems associated with substance use and addiction.

Within 24 hours of receiving a referral, a member of the COE Care Management team will reach out to meet with the identified individual face-to-face to talk with them about recovery, the COE, the available services and the next steps. This meeting may take place within a facility the individual is preparing to depart, whether it be medical, inpatient treatment for substance use or mental health, or criminal justice. It may also take place in the community, at their home, physician’s office or another location.

People are valuable.

Therefore, PCS exists to help children, adults and families discover their greatness.
