Opioid Health Home

What is an Opioid Health Home (OHH)?

An Opioid Health Home is not an actual home of any kind, nor is it a rehabilitation center. It is a program that creates an integrated approach to substance use treatment, where participants will receive a number of services to help manage all their substance use, mental health, and physical health needs.

When someone enrolls in the OHH program, they will work closely with a Care Team. This team is designed to help individuals better understand and manage their conditions under one roof, with the goal of simplifying where services are delivered.

The Care Team will work with individuals to create a care plan which will address physical, mental health, substance use, recovery, and social service needs. The team will help identify the services someone needs within the OHH as well as programs in the community that are specific to all your individual healthcare needs.

Who will be on your Care Team?

  • A Physician
  • A Psychiatrist
  • A Nurse Care Manager
  • A Recovery Coach or a Community Health Worker
  • A Behavior Consultant

What services are available?

  • Comprehensive Transitional Care

What types of things can your Care Team help you with?

  • Make appointments with your doctor or a specialist for you, and work with your providers to make sure you get the care you need.
  • Work with doctors you already have if that is what you prefer.
  • Help you understand your chronic health conditions and give you information to help manage problems like diabetes, asthma, or high blood pressure.
  • Refer you to resources you need to get healthier. You can get help with substance abuse. You can also get needed support to lose weight, eat better, or quit smoking.

Testimonials

OHH Enrollees

  • "I'm so happy to have the extra support."
  • "I don't know what I would do if I didn't have OHH to help me with my recovery."
  • "Three clients since working with me have got a vehicle and job in less than a month and told me they wouldn't of did it without my help to guide them in the right direction to stay focused long enough to get it done."

OHH Staff​​​​​​​

  • "<Name redacted>has got a vehicle, house, driver's license and job and now supervisor of his own crew. He managed to go from using seven days a week to almost nothing and been clean as far as I know since working with me. He is determined as ever since starting with OHH to get right and he's been doing it every time I see him. All he needed was positive reinforcement and someone to call when he needed guidance from another person that went through it to explain how a sober person does things instead of what his addictive mindset tells him."
  • "<Name redacted> now sees a mental health provider."
  • "<Name redacted> and <Name redacted> both have been able to complete the application for disability."
  • "<Name redacted> has gotten on the waiting list for Section 8 housing."
