Indiana’s Family and Social Services Administration Adds Five New Opioid Treatment Programs

The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) today announced the agency will add five opioid treatment programs (OTP) as part of the state’s coordinated effort to attack the drug epidemic. Indiana will have 19 OTPs to administer medication assisted treatment or “MAT” to qualifying Hoosiers currently recovering from substance use disorders. The treatment uses FDA-approved medications to help people manage their addiction so that they can maintain the benefits of recovery.

In addition to Valle Vista in Johnson County, new OTP certifications have been awarded to the Bowen Center in Allen County, the Hamilton Center in Vigo County and Sycamore Springs, which will have facilities in Monroe and Tippecanoe counties. These OTPs are anticipated to begin offering services by before June 30, 2018.
