Opioid Health Home

What is an “Opioid Health Home?”

View the MDHHS OHH brochure Here

Your Opioid Health Home will provide comprehensive care management and coordination of services. It will function as the central point of contact for directing patient-centered care across the broader health care system. OHH Care Team is an interdisciplinary team of providers who develop an individualized recovery care plan to best manage your care.

The model will also elevate the role and importance of peer recovery coaches and community health workers to foster direct empathy and connection to improve overall health and wellness.

Participation is voluntary, and enrolled beneficiaries may opt out at any time.

Everyone who chooses to enroll in our Opioid Health Home program will have access to a comprehensive Care Team, including:
  • A Physician
  • A Nurse Care Manager
  • A Clinical Case Manager
  • A Recovery Coach or a Community Health Worker
  • An OHH Coordinator

The care team will work with additional community providers as needed to ensure care management to enable a person to focus their recovery.

In a Health Home, your Care Team can:
  • Make appointments with your doctor or a specialist for you, and work with your providers to make sure you get the care you need.
  • Work with doctors you already have, if that is what you prefer.
  • Help you understand your chronic health conditions and give you information to help manage problems like diabetes, asthma, or high blood pressure.
  • Refer you to resources you need to get healthier. You can get help with substance abuse. You can also get needed support to lose weight, eat better, or quit smoking.
  • Assist you with housing applications, legal resources, transportation, or other issues.
  • Connect you to useful services in your community.

The Opioid Health Home (OHH) uses evidence-based, medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and an interdisciplinary care team to target both the opioid disorder and physical health conditions.
