Opioid addiction treatment center opens in Martinsville




MARTINSVILLE, VA – Groups Recover Together, an outpatient treatment provider serving individuals with opioid use disorder, has opened its door at 294 Commonwealth Boulevard West.


Groups enters Virginia with the initial opening of six locations including Martinsville.


Virginia Regional Director Ashleigh Bowman says they offer a clinical model that incorporates the benefits of medication-assisted treatment and group counseling.


Improving access to treatment comes at a much-needed time since the COVID-19 pandemic has caused an uptick in opioid addiction and overdoses.


Bowman says uninsured individuals will never pay more than $65 for an entire week of treatment.


In addition to treatment, care coordinators will connect people with insurance, if eligible, for assistance with nutrition, housing and employment.


This is a personal topic for Bowman as she enter her 13th year in recovery.


Groups Recover Together is currently accepting new members and accepts insurance including Medicaid.


If you or someone you know is struggling from opioid use disorder, call Groups' 24/7 hotline at 1-800-683-8313.
