BayMark prioritizes expanding access to effective opioid addiction treatment.

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Jan. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- BayMark Health Services has announced the opening of MedMark Treatment Centers Columbus Powell, the fifth Ohio location opened in the past year, located at 45 Lazelle Road East on the North side of Columbus. MedMark Columbus Powell will provide medically-supervised, medication-assisted treatment (MAT), counseling and support services for those seeking treatment for opioid use disorder.

"Almost every American has experienced the impact of the opioid crisis in some way and its effects have had a devastating impact in the state of Ohio. In 2017, more than 4,100 residents of Ohio died of an opioid related overdose," shared David K. White, Ph.D., CEO of BayMark Health Services. "MedMark brings hope and proven treatment services to Columbus and the surrounding area, offering our patients a chance at meaningful, long-term recovery."

MedMark Treatment Centers are known across the country as providers of comprehensive, individualized treatment for opioid use disorder. Utilizing FDA-approved treatment medications including methadone and buprenorphine, MAT reduces the symptoms of withdrawal and cravings, paving the way for patients to focus on addressing the causes and consequences of their addiction. Additionally, MedMark Columbus Powell will provide addiction education, relapse prevention, lab testing, coordinated care for pregnancy and linkages to community resources to assist patients on their path to recovery.

Chief Operating Officer Frank Baumann added, "We are pleased to be expanding access to a proven treatment model in the Columbus area. MedMark's medical, clinical and administrative staff offer compassionate, respectful treatment to individuals struggling with addiction, and will no doubt continue to do just that as we welcome patients in our newest facility."
