Center of Excellence by Wolf Administration
Pennsylvania Department of Human Services to Fund Opioid Treatment
Pottsville, PA – Clinical Outcomes Group, Inc./ COGI has been designated as one of Governor Tom Wolf’s 45 statewide Centers of Excellence (COE) designed to offer treatment to individuals with opioid-related substance use disorder and is the only COE in Schuylkill County. Pennsylvania Human Services Cabinet Secretary, Ted Dallas, visited COGI on Thursday October 13, 2016 at 1:30PM to tour the facility and meet its administration and staff.
The COEs coordinate care for people with Medicaid. Rather than just treating the addiction, COEs will treat the entire person through team-based treatment, with a very specific goal of integrating behavioral health, primary care and, when necessary, medication assisted treatment. These centers are efficient hubs around which treatment revolves. Their purpose is to assist people with opioid-related substance use disorders through the medical system.
The Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs will license the COEs as drug and alcohol providers that provide one of the three FDA-approved medications.
COGI provides health and social services throughout Pennsylvania. Our focus is on behavioral health issues such as substance abuse, mental health, domestic violence, tobacco, workplace wellness and family services. COGI strives to develop and implement innovative programs through partnerships with communities and employers and to develop policies and programs that focus on a system of change.
COGI is guided by a public health philosophy that emphasizes access to services, high quality and cost effective services. Our services are evaluated both internally and externally to assess effectiveness. We invest in a strong data collection and analysis infrastructure aimed to improve service quality. Our dedicated staff includes individuals with advanced degrees with professional licenses specializing in behavioral health service delivery. Learn more about COGI at: www.COGInc.org.

As a public health and social services provider, funding for programs is often restricted for only direct services. The COGI Staff cares about not only the direct services we provide to our clients, but also about the client as a whole. In an effort to support the unmet needs of our clients, COGI staff created and named “The COGI Cares Fund”.
The purpose of this fund is to assist clients in their time of need or in an unusual circumstance. Our staff wanted the ability to support their clients in their recovery and when possible taking down barriers that may put their recovery at risk.
Through various fundraising efforts, the COGI staff will build “The COGI Cares Fund” and at the discretion of our Executive Director, the treatment team can request funds on a client’s behalf.
Donations made directly to this fund may be tax deductible as COGI is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. (Donation receipts are available upon request).
Help us to better serve our clients!
