LIMA — A new outpatient clinic in Lima is offering medication-assisted treatment, counseling and recovery services for substance-use disorder as Ohio’s opioid epidemic appears to be escalating.

Nashville-based Spero Health opened the Lima outpatient clinic on Cable Road in September, becoming the latest clinic here to offer Suboxone and Vivitrol for opioid-use disorder.
