Mountain Comprehensive Care Center (MCCC) is pleased to announce the receipt of a SUD (substance use disorder) expansion grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to expand access to quality integrated prevention and treatment through the HomePlace Clinic, located at 838 South Mayo Trail, Paintsville, KY.
Kentucky has the nation’s 5th highest opioid overdose rate at 33.5% - 69% higher than the US at 19.8%. Additionally, eastern Kentucky has among the highest state and national rates for opioid risk, inpatient hospitalizations and overdose related deaths.
In an effort to remain consistent with the mission of MCCC, Medication-Assisted Treatment will become part of the agency behavioral health care treatment and recovery interventions for persons with opioid use disorder (OUD). Medication-Assisted Treatment is the use of medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a whole-patient approach to the treatment of substance use disorders. Research shows that a combination of medication and therapy can successfully treat these disorders and help sustain recovery.
