Maine Primary Care Association and Penobscot Community Health Center, Low Barrier Treatment for Opioid Use Disorder Initiative

BANGOR, Maine, Nov. 10—An innovative program expanding low-barrier treatment for opiate use disorder—potentially serving thousands of people across Maine—launches this month at six of the state’s community health centers. This pilot project—training community-based providers to build and maintain medically assisted treatment clinics—will increase access to this critically needed treatment in areas most affected by the opiate crisis, including the hard-hit rural areas of Maine.
