Pinnacle Treatment Centers (PTC), which provides accessible treatment for substance use disorders, has opened its fifth location in Virginia.

The new outpatient treatment centre, which is located in Richmond, and is PTC’s 66th facility within the US, will offer medically-assisted detox, group therapy and meditation, among others.

Pinnacle Treatment Centers CEO Joe Pritchard said: “Given the opioid epidemic in Richmond and throughout the state, there is a drastic need for treatment, and our company is committed to bringing care directly into the community to help solve this crisis.”

Based on a report from the Virginia Department of Health Chief Medical Examiners, every year 1,100 Virginians are killed by fatal heroin or fentanyl use.

Drug overdose is primarily caused by opioid use and is the primary cause of unnatural death in Virginia since 2012.

Pinnacle regional medical director Dr Martin Buxton said: “As a long-standing addictionologist and psychiatrist, I value Pinnacle Treatment Center’s years of experience and knowledge in the treatment of all addictions.
