Pinnacle Treatment Centers opened another treatment center in South Jersey this March, aiming to meet the increasing need for opioid addiction treatment in the community. Vineland Daily Journal captures commentary from the Executive Director of Vineland Treatment Services, Stephanie Lamancusa, who speaks to the need for a treatment center in the area:
“There’s no treatment provider within a 30- to 40-mile radius for the opioid epidemic that we have,” said Stephanie Lamancusa, the center’s executive director, noting Cumberland County residents were commuting to their nearest location in Pennsauken. “It’s needed down here.”
Since opening, the center has acquired 50 clients and is staffed by seven medical professionals. According to the article, the center offers “medication-assisted treatment including methadone and Suboxone, medically-assisted detox, individual and group therapy, meditation, and mindfulness programs to help those over 18 dealing with addition.”
