Commitment to Action

Greater Portland Addiction Collaborative

Commitment by

Mercy Hospital

In 2016, Mercy Hospital and several nonprofit and public sector partners, committed to create and launch the Greater Portland Addiction Collaborative. Through this efforts, its members aim to contribute to the long-term health and wellbeing of the Greater Portland community through an integrated and comprehensive treatment model specifically focused on uninsured persons battling heroin or opioid addiction. Under this new approach, the potential improvement in clinical outcomes, financial and operational performance of several organizations will drive resource allocation, continuous improvement, and delivery redesign that will result in fewer overdoses and untimely deaths. By implementing a new Coordination Team and data sharing, expanding access to detoxification service and beds, hiring additional nurses and counselors and adding new sober living facilities, this Commitment will impact more than 1,200 lives over the next three years.
