Governor Tom Wolf announced that his administration will implement an additional 25 Centers of Excellence (COEs) locations throughout the state by January 1, 2017. The COEs will offer treatment to Pennsylvanians with opioid-related substance use disorder. Department of Human Services promises to treat the entire person through a team-based approach, with the explicit goal of integrating behavioral health and primary care and, when appropriate, evidence-based medication assisted treatment. Adding these 25 new locations brings the total number of COEs to 45. The 2016/17 budget included $10 million in behavioral health funding and $5 million in medical assistance funding, totaling $15 million. This will allow DHS to draw down $5.4 million in federal funding for an overall total of $20.4 million. The 25 selected recipients are:
