MTA (Mountain Transit Authority) through the SOR Grant (State Opioid Response Grant) provides transportation services to individuals in a drug treatment plan for Opioid Addiction.
With this grant opportunity, MTA currently provides access to individuals in Braxton, Greenbrier, Monroe, Nicholas, Pocahontas, Summers, and Webster Counties to Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) centers or programs and evidence-based services that identify and engage individuals in treatment and provides support to help keep them in treatment and long-term recovery.
Transportation is now available to help individuals get to the recovery services they need. Through a partnership between the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the West Virginia Public Transportation Association, MTA provides transportation to treatment centers throughout the state. Currently, MTA is transporting individuals to Beckley, Charleston, Huntington, Morgantown, and all areas within our service areas.
We are currently working with Seneca Mental Health, Lifeline, Charleston Treatment Center, Kinetic Connections, Mountaineer Family, Camden Medical Centers, and DRC’s in our service areas to provide transportation services to the individual within this program. At this time, there is no charge to the treatment enter or individuals for transportation services.
The individuals need to have their treatment center call MTA, Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. to set up their transportation services at 304-872-5872. We will schedule our services as needed Monday-Friday and in emergency treatment need situations for Saturday and Sundays.
