Office Based Opioid Treatment(OBOT)
Our Office Based Opiate Treatment (OBOT) serves people with problems managing opiate use using two primary care physicians who are certified to provide suboxone induction necessary for OBOT treatment. OCHS engaged Gosnold Clinic to join in offering weekly group treatment for those OBOT patients who were offered this supportive treatment. OCHS program has grown, and now two Registered Nurses trained to provide weekly individual sessions with OBOT patients support their recovery. The program has grown from an initial enrollment of 30 to now over 150 with an equally large waiting list. OCHS now has the largest OBOT program on Cape Cod, an area with a disproportionate share of opiate overdoses and hospitalizations.
