Opiate Treatment Programs
Opioid treatment program (OTPs) provide medication assisted treatment (MAT) for patients diagnosed with opioid-use disorder. Typically, these facilities have the largest array of MAT options including methadone, buprenorphine products and naltrexone.
OTPs are different than more common, office-based opioid treatment programs because they are licensed by various federal and state authorities and must adhere to a strict set of guidelines that cover patient care. For example, patients on methadone must report to the facility for highly supervised medication management early in their recovery, and they are granted take home doses as they progress in their recovery. OTPs also provide enhanced counseling services, physical health care services, and promote recovery-oriented systems of care to all patients.
Organizations that are looking to establish new facilities for MAT in Ohio must submit an application to the OhioMHAS Bureau of Licensure and Certification.
