Google Quietly Explores Addiction Treatment in Ohio

The Dayton Daily News reported on March 2, 2019, that a “health care start-up with ties to Google is working to open the new opioid rehab campus that officials hope will become a national model for combating the deadly drug overdose and addiction crisis.”

According to the article, “The state-of-the-art ‘recovery campus’ will treat about 1,000 people in the first year. Clients can refer themselves or come from referrals made by health care providers, family members or drug courts.”

The program is being called “OneFifteen” and is a joint venture between Verily, Kettering Health Network and Premier Health.  OneFifteen will operate the facilities, in partnership with Samaritan Behavioral Health, which will provide clinical care across the entire campus. Premier Health and Kettering Health are partners on the project and will provide leadership and financial and other support.

OneFifteen was developed in partnership with Verily, which is a sister organization of Google, and under the Alphabet umbrella. Verily says its focus is to use technology to better understand health and prevent and manage disease.
