Vermont Hub-And-Spoke Model
By Addiction Policy Forum
The Vermont Hub-and-Spoke Model, “hubs” provide individuals with medication-assisted treatment, specifically methadone and buprenorphine. Simultaneously, the “spokes” offer individuals a three-person primary care team, with a clinician or counselor, nurse, and physician. Each individual has a unique plan overseen by the doctor and buttressed by a counselor and nurse who connect the client with community-based supports.
