Getting to the CORE of the Problem: Transforming Care for Opioid Use Disorder

Among major cities in the U.S., Philadelphia ranks highest in opioid overdose deaths. Each year, thousands of individuals with Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) visit Philadelphia’s Emergency Departments. OUD is a medical condition, but too often, standard ED treatment fails to address it Penn Behavioral Health, in partnership with The Penn Medicine Center for Health Care Innovation, developed CORE (Center for Opioid Recovery and Engagement), an innovative service aimed at providing ED patients with evidence-based OUD treatment, peer counseling, and linkage to long-term care. Learn how CORE is changing and saving lives.
