Open house scheduled for Oct. 16

Recovery Centers of America recently opened a second medication assisted treatment (MAT) clinic in Somerdale – Bravo Medical  – for patients in Camden County, South Jersey and Philadelphia.

According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, Camden County had the highest number of drug-related deaths in New Jersey in 2017, and was the 37th worst county out of 3,000 total counties in the nation for drug deaths.

The public is invited to tour the Bravo Medical facility on Oct. 16, from 12 p.m. – 2 p.m. Speakers at the event will include Brian O’Neill, chief executive officer of RCA; Dr. Michael DeShields, medical director of RCA’s MAT program; Dr. Angela Saliba, executive director of Bravo Medical; and Melissa Bishop, RCA national director of MAT.

“MAT is a vital tool in the battle against opioid addictions,” said Bishop. “But many people are still afraid to learn more about it because of the stigma attached to this form of treatment.

“At our Open House event, families of loved ones with an addiction, those in the community considering MAT as a treatment choice, and other South Jersey and Philly residents who advocate for those suffering from addiction can take a look at how the medication is administered and hear from experts about the effectiveness of MAT,” she said.
