Recovery Centers of America, a community-based provider, announced it has opened a new outpatient center in Trenton to meet the growing demand for treatment for opioid and other drug-related addictions.
The center will provide Medication-Assisted Treatment, which is the combination of FDA-approved medication to starve drug cravings along with intensive counseling to combat addition.
“We’re excited to bring a more robust MAT program, providing a whole-patient approach for the community,” Melissa Bishop, RCA’s MAT division director, said. “MAT has proven to be an effective way to keep patients in treatment longer, increasing the likelihood of long-term recovery.”
The clinic will employ a staff of 25 and plans to hire more nurses and clinicians to accommodate growth throughout the rest of the year, it said.
RCA currently has two addiction treatment centers in New Jersey.
