With nearly 400 inpatient psychiatric beds and more than 50 ambulatory programs, UPMC Northwest is one of the largest behavioral health care providers affiliated with an academic medical center in the country. - It also provides medication assisted treatment (MAT) utilizing the drug Vivitrol. Vivitrol, a long acting injectable version of the drug Naltrexone, was selected as a more viable alternative to Suboxone (Buprenorphine), which has been shown to have abuse potential, and is often traded for other street drugs or sold for cash. - The Vivitrol Program is unique and consists of several core features. First of all, it takes place in the context of an already successful drug court that has been certified by the state Supreme Court. - While participants in the program are experiencing legal problems, they also have serious mental health needs, lack employment and transportation, are in overall poor health, are often homeless, and lack a recovery or pro-social support network. - This project at UPMC Northwest is designed to address all of these needs and provides participants with key wraparound services such as mental health and substance abuse treatment, case management services and healthcare as they progress through the four phase, twelve-month program.
