Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall Addresses Opioid Crisis at Grand Opening of Pathway Healthcare’s Mobile, AL Location
Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall will be joining Pathway Healthcare (www.pathwayhealthcare.com) for the grand opening of its new office location on Monday, September 10th. Pathway Healthcare is a leading provider of office-based medical and behavioral treatment for drug and alcohol addiction and dependency. The new Pathway Healthcare office will provide members of the greater Mobile community access to world-class care for substance use disorders, including opioid use disorder. Attorney General Steve Marshall will attend the event and make remarks on the current state of opioid use in Alabama.
With four additional Alabama offices located in Birmingham, Hamilton, Madison and Robertsdale, Pathway Healthcare is aggressively working to increase access to care in Alabama and throughout the country. Pathway Healthcare specializes in treating opioid use disorder, alcohol dependency, and other drug use disorders through a proprietary care model, known as MAT Plus®, which combines medication-assisted treatment with behavioral counseling.
“We are grateful to Attorney General Steve Marshall for his leadership in combating the opioid crisis, and appreciate his participation in the opening of our new treatment office,” said Scott Olson, CEO of Pathway Healthcare. “Our mission is to end the stigma of substance use disorders by bringing compassionate and evidence-based treatment into the mainstream of medical care.”
Twenty-one million Americans suffer from some form of alcohol or substance use disorder. In 2016, 42,200 Americans died from opioid-related drug overdoses. Alabama’s 1st Congressional District (AL01), which includes Mobile, currently has the fifth highest opioid prescription rate in the country.
“Pathway Healthcare’s unique approach, which provides a combination of medication and behavioral therapy, gives individuals suffering from addiction the best chance at recovery,” said Dr. Eugene Saiter, addiction specialist and medical director with Pathway Healthcare. “It is important that Pathway Healthcare continues to expand nationwide, especially in areas of need.”
