Newport News, VA – This month, Wellpath announced the opening of its newest Community Care Center in Newport News, VA, devoted to treating substance use disorders.
“We are excited to bring our expertise to the Newport News Community and expand local options for the treatment of substance use disorders,” said, Joan Erwin, SVP of Operations. “Wellpath is devoted to combatting the opioid crisis, along with other substance use disorders, providing the highest level of care for our patients, and helping heal the communities that are impacted by this tragic substance use epidemic destroying families and our neighborhoods.”
Wellpath is a leading healthcare company transforming public health by delivering hope and healing to those who need it most. Our top priority is to protect the health of the community and individuals who may be suffering from addiction disorders, including opioids. The Wellpath Community Care Centers offers evidence-based Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) and outpatient Substance Use Disorder programs for individuals struggling with opioids or other substances including alcohol, tobacco, methamphetamine, fentanyl, cocaine and hallucinogens, all under one roof. This combination is intended to reduce the risk of relapse and support lifelong sobriety.
The outpatient program will be tailored to each patient’s unique circumstances. Tele-health services will also be available for those who cannot make it to the clinic regularly, which is especially critical to continue servicing patients during COVID-19. Walk-ins are welcome. Wellpath is working with the local community to provide support for individuals afflicted with substance use disorders where and when they need it the most.
