a leading provider of office-based medical and behavioral treatment for
drug and alcohol addiction and dependency, has opened a new Pathway
Healthcare office in Springfield, TN located at 810 Hill Street. Pathway
Healthcare specializes in treating opioid use disorder, alcohol
dependency, and other drug use disorders through a proprietary care
model, known as MAT Plus®, which combines medication assisted treatment
with behavioral counseling.

Dr. Robert Shearer is the Medical Director for the Nashville office. A
board-certified addiction medicine specialist, Dr. Shearer also
practices obstetrics and gynecology and is on the Tennessee
Buprenorphine Treatment and Guidelines Committee. He has been treating
addiction in the Nashville, TN area for the last four years and has
practiced medicine in the state for almost 40 years.

"I am delighted at the opportunity to join Pathway Healthcare as Medical
Director in Nashville," said Dr. Shearer. "Pathway offers unrivaled
substance use disorder treatments, and provides patients with access to
optimal recovery options. I am honored to join the team."

Twenty-one million Americans suffer from some form of alcohol or
substance use disorder. In 2016, 42,200 Americans died from
opioid-related drug overdoses. Tennessee had 4,535 reported drug
overdose deaths from 2012-2016 and more than 6.8 million individuals
were prescribed opioids in 2017.

"We are pleased to expand into the Nashville area, continuing our
mission to provide increased access to addiction treatment for people
across the country," said Scott Olson, CEO of Pathway Healthcare. "With
more than 40 years of experience practicing medicine in Tennessee, Dr.
Shearer will bring a unique expertise to this new office."

This will be Pathway Healthcare's second treatment center in Tennessee,
with the first being located in Jackson. Pathway also has locations in
Alabama, Mississippi, and Texas. Pathway Healthcare believes that a
combination of medication and counseling is the best way to bring about
recovery in patients suffering from substance use disorders.
