Pinnacle Treatment Centers has acquired Addiction Medicine Care of Columbus, an office-based opioid treatment program in Reynoldsburg, Ohio. AMC of Columbus is Pinnacle’s 18th OBOT in Ohio.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

Pinnacle, headquartered in the greater Philadelphia area, will retain the medical, clinical and administrative staff at the facility, which treats 400 adult men and women on a daily basis. AMC of Columbus is in-network with most insurance providers and also accepts Medicaid.

“Given the opioid epidemic in Ohio, there is a drastic need for treatment, and our company is committed to bringing affordable care directly into the community to help solve this crisis.” Pinnacle CEO Joseph Pritchard said, in a statement. “We are pleased to add AMC of Columbus to our program offerings and locations and will do our part to continue to bring hope to the community of Reynoldsburg and the Columbus area.”

Pinnacle’s 25-plus programs in Ohio, which include a residential drug and alcohol addiction treatment center, Recovery Works Columbus, exemplify an integrated ambulatory model of care. The OBOT program offers medication-assisted treatment utilizing Suboxone, medically-assisted detox, and individual, group and family therapy.

The majority of drug overdose deaths —nearly 49,000 — last year were caused by opioids, and the biggest driver was the dangerous synthetic opioid, fentanyl, which killed more than 29,000 people. The highest death rates were reported in West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Ohio.
