What is an “Opioid Health Home?”

View the MDHHS brochure here

An Opioid Health Home (OHH) is not an actual home of any kind, nor is it a rehabilitation center. It is a program that creates an integrated approach to substance use treatment, where participants will receive a number of services to help manage all their substance use, mental health, and physical health needs.

When someone enrolls in the OHH program, they will work closely with a Care Team. This team is designed to help individuals better understand and manage their conditions under one roof, with the goal of simplifying where services are delivered.

The Care Team will work with individuals to create a care plan which will address physical, mental health, substance use, recovery, and social service needs. The team will help identify the services someone needs within the OHH as well as programs in the community that are specific to all of your individual healthcare needs.

Who’s on the Team?

  • A Physician
  • A Nurse Care Manager
  • A Clinical Case Manager
  • A Peer Recovery Coach and/or Community Health Worker
  • An OHH Coordinator

The Care Team will work closely with the Macomb County Office of Substance Abuse as well as any additional community providers and partners as needed to help link individuals to the most appropriate and needed services that will help a person to focus on his or her recovery.

What do services look like?

When enrolled in an OHH, there are many services the Care Team can provide. They can:

  • Make appointments with outside doctors or specialists for individuals.
  • Work with current providers to ensure coordination of care.
  • Help individuals understand their chronic health conditions and give them information to help manage health concerns such as: diabetes, asthma, high blood pressure, or any other condition that needs attention.
  • Promotion of health services to support individuals in losing weight, eating better, or quitting smoking, depending on the goals of each person.
  • Assist with housing applications, legal resources, transportation, or other ancillary needs.
  • Connect individuals with other useful, needed services in the community.

The Opioid Health Home will use evidence-based practices, Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT), and an interdisciplinary Care Team to target the Opioid Use Disorder, other substance use problems, and any other mental health and physical health conditions to help assist individuals to be healthier and the most successful they can be in their journey of recovery.
