It is an integrated model that approaches recovery holistically. Warm handoffs are facilitated between MAT providers and behavioral health services. Services at CORE (Center for Opioid Recovery and Engagement) are free for all patients, regardless of insurance
Emergency Engagement Services
Individuals with an opioid substance disorder who present at the Emergency Department of Penn Presbyterian Medical Center will be promptly connected with a Certified Recovery Specialist or Care Coordinator. Certified Recovery Specialists are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and will meet with and engage the individual to discuss their options.
Care coordinators and Certified Recovery Specialists are skilled at motivational interviewing and know how to engage individuals in a discussion that can help move them from one stage of change to the next.
Treating each patient with respect and dignity, the care coordinators and Certified Recovery Specialists will give individuals an experience of feeling cared for, understood, and gently guided to a hopeful new option in the substance uses/recovery world. This will include various pathways to recovery, some of which might include medication-assisted treatment.
