US-based opioid addiction care provider Ophelia has collaborated with Vori Health, a musculoskeletal (MSK) and orthopaedic practice, to improve patients’ access to safe opioid use disorder (OUD) care services.
The partnership aims to address pain management in an opioid-free way for patients suffering from chronic pain and opioid addiction, as well as people in recovery seeking opioid-free MSK care.
It allows Vori Health medical staff to refer patients who report opioid addiction to Ophelia.
Ophelia co-founder and CEO Zack Gray said: “Integrating MSK and SUD treatment is critical to ensuring that patients do not have to choose between the discomfort of chronic pain and the risk of opioid addiction.
“This partnership between Ophelia and Vori Health represents a shared commitment to holistic patient care and a belief in technology to unify specialists across a common platform.”
Based in New York, Ophelia works to provide medications as addiction treatment for OUD through counselling and behavioural therapies.
