Family First Health Expands Substance Use Treatment Program to Columbia

Family First Health’s Center of Excellence provides patients with substance use disorders the support they need to reach, and maintain recovery. The team links patients to community resources and support services, and then walks alongside each patient to ensure that critical needs are met and that the patient remains in care for as long as needed. The goal – to give each patient the supports needed to get, and stay healthy.

The program began in 2016, with Family First Health’s Hanover Center and George Street Center offices. On September 12, 2017, Family First Health will begin offering these services to patients in our Columbia Center office. Services at these three locations include:

Support and medical care coordinated with the primary care provider.

Access to a comprehensive care management team comprised of case managers, recovery support specialists, and a licensed clinical social worker.

Customized support to navigate the care system and get to/maintain recovery.

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) to support sustained recovery.

For more information regarding the Center of Excellence, substance use treatment program, please call the program manager, Erin Cosgrove-Findley at 717-801-4864.
