A new treatment center has opened in Rhode Island to help combat the opioid epidemic.

Democratic Gov. Gina Raimondo called the epidemic the most urgent public health crisis during an appearance at Butler Hospital in Providence Thursday.

The hospital chain Care New England is offering medication-assisted treatment for opiate addiction 24 hours a day, seven days a week, through the new program. Patients are being seen at Butler and an outpatient facility in North Kingstown, Continuum Behavioral Health at Meadows Edge.

It was launched using about $250,000 in federal funds Rhode Island received to combat substance abuse.
