Verily planning $5M expansion of tech-based opioid treatment initiative

Alphabet's life sciences arm Verily is seeking funding to expand its OneFifteen opioid addiction and recovery campus, launched earlier this year in partnership with Dayton, Ohio-based Premier Health and Kettering Health Network, the Dayton Daily News reports.

The project will reportedly cost a total of $5 million. It proposes the addition of a 5,000-square-foot outpatient detox center to the two existing OneFifteen outpatient clinics in Dayton. OneFifteen President and CEO Marti Taylor, MSN, told the Daily News the organization is primarily seeking state funding to support the project.

The completed OneFifteen campus, which is named for the daily average of opioid overdose deaths in the U.S. in 2017, will ultimately comprise six facilities, offering both outpatient and inpatient care, as well as emergency and mental health services and long-term detox support. Many of the offerings will have tech-based components, and data will be continually collected and analyzed across the campus to improve clinical, social and cost outcomes.
