Help for opioid addiction

Local News

An area hospital now has a new option for patients addicted to opioids. Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center is offering emergency Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT).

It’s available for people who arrive in the emergency room in a state of withdrawal, but are committed to seeking longer term treatment. These patients can receive emergency management of their withdrawal symptoms while they work with a care team to get into a sustained treatment program.
