Pinnacle Treatment Centers Opens New MAT Facility

Pinnacle Treatment Centers (PTC) has opened a new clinic to treat people with opioid use disorder (OUD).

Elyria Treatment Services began serving patients late last month. The Elyria, Ohio-based opioid treatment center is Pinnacle’s ninth in the state, which has more than 25 Pinnacle programs total.

Beyond opioid treatment, Pinnacle provides various substance abuse recovery services nationwide, with locations in Indiana, Kentucky, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia. Its program offerings span the continuum of care, from inpatient detoxification and outpatient medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to transitional living programs and beyond.


Elyria Treatment Services will offer MAT services, along with various forms of therapy. The clinic will accept Medicaid, Medicare and private pay.

It’s “one of a select few” affordable, outpatient treatment options for those in the Elyria area, according to a press release announcing the news. The goal of the program is to help people recover without interrupting their educational, employment or family obligations.

Studies have shown that MAT is successful at keeping people in OUD while also reducing relapses, criminal activity, infectious disease transmission and overdose deaths among participants.


“Medication-assisted treatment can be truly life saving for those struggling with an opioid use disorder,” Ricky Ferguson, executive director of Elyria Treatment Services, said in a press release announcing the news. “Addiction is a disease that often is recurring and the individual can experience multiple relapses on their path to recovery. We’re committed to being here every step of the way so that our clients and their families can reclaim their lives and future.”
