PATH™
Primary Addiction Treatment at Home
Program

Community Wellness provides remote (telemonitored) clinical counseling services, Medication-Assisted Therapy (MAT) and other support for patients seeking care for Opioid Use Disorder (OUD). Our attentive telehealth providers – physicians, nurse practitioners, addiction counselors, behavioral health coaches and technical support specialists – provide state of the art care to patients in need, even the most rural parts of Kentucky, using Community Wellness’ secure, online healthcare video teleconferencing platform and electronic health system.
