Mobile Community-Based Engagement and Retention for Persons with Opioid Use Disorder

Allegheny Health Network dispatches mobile teams of paramedics and addiction medicine specialists to remote areas in Western Pennsylvania where overdose rates are high and treatment options are limited. The teams, which also include pharmacy and mental health specialists as well as nurse practitioners and recovery specialists, offer medications for opioid use disorder and social supports to engage patients and retain them in treatment.
