Help Spread the Word on PA GET HELP NOW Hotline

PACHC has developed posters and social media sample messages and images to help you get the word out on the state's new hotline to get individuals connected to help for opioid use disorder.  You can access the materials here. PACHC is working with state officials to come up with ways to not only connect individuals to medication assisted treatment, but to also connect them to health centers as their healthcare home for medical, dental and behavioral health care.  Access the PACHC map of health centers offering medication assisted treatment (MAT) here and let us know if updates or corrections need to be made for your health center's sites. If you have other suggestions on how PACHC can support you in responding to the opioid crisis in the communities you serve, please let us know.  Once again, health centers are on the front line of response to a public health emergency.
