NILES, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 3, 2023--

Pinnacle Treatment Centers, one of the largest methadone providers in the U.S. announced the opening of a new treatment center in Niles. The center will be Pinnacle’s 20 th location in the Buckeye State.

Dedicated to helping adults struggling with substance use and addiction recovery, Niles Treatment Services will provide medication-assisted treatment through medications methadone and buprenorphine (Suboxone) as part of a thorough treatment program which includes individual, group, and family counseling. Patients will have access to other wrap around services like peer support and targeted case management.

“We understand that addiction affects multiple facets of a person’s life. While the physical stabilization through medication is key, that is just one weapon in our arsenal. While the medication takes care of the physical piece by helping with cravings, we can work in parallel to help restore the other areas affected by the disease through counseling, peer support, and case management” said Angelica Brewer, Niles’ Executive Director.

Peer support will provide patients with the encouragement to continue their personal development to develop the skills they need for long-term recovery. “Peer support is just one aspect of the wrap-around services we provide our patients. They have a unique ability to connect with, advocate for, and share experiences with people entering recovery. An often-overlooked aspect of successful recovery is a network of experts equipped with tools to support someone on their journey,” said Jennifer Morgenstern, Pinnacle Treatment Services Regional Director.

Trumbull County, where Niles is located, has one of the highest drug overdose death rates in the state. With Fentanyl on the rise, 2020 saw a death rate increase of 32% according to the Ohio Department of Health.

Multifaceted support and connection to community resources like housing, employment, education, and healthcare is at the forefront of case management efforts. “We have been reaching Ohioans through our network of treatment centers across every level of care, and we hope that those in need of services know that help is available.” said Brian Thorn, COO of Pinnacle Treatment Centers.

Niles Treatment Services accepts Medicaid, commercial insurance, and offers reasonable self-pay rates. The center is open Mondays through Fridays, 5:30 a.m. - 7p.m., and on Saturdays, 5:00 a.m.- 10 a.m. Individuals can call 234-544-3322 for a free, confidential assessment.
