JAMESTOWN – New York’s Office of Addiction Services and Supports announced Thursday funding to establish a new 100-slot Opioid Treatment Program in Chautauqua County.

Officials say the program will be operated by UPMC Chautauqua and located at the Jones Memorial Health Center on Glasgow Avenue.

The treatment program aims to foster patient-centered individualized treatment of substance abuse.



Furthermore, UPMC Chautauqua will now be able to provide all three FDA-approved medicines for addiction: methadone, buprenorphine and vivitrol.

This is the first time a program of this magnitude has called Jamestown home.

Specific funding needs for the project will be determined via a feasibility study conducted by UPMC and the state.
