Wolf Administration officials, along with the mother of a Pennsylvania man who was recruited to an out-of-state treatment facility, recently issued a warning to Pennsylvanians to be wary of predatory practices used by some addiction treatment centers and sober living homes, many of which are located outside of Pennsylvania.

Pennsylvania Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs Secretary Jennifer Smith and Pennsylvania Insurance Commissioner Jessica Altman were joined by Lizz DeWolfe, founder of Not One More in Wyoming County and mother of J.J. Baker, who died of an opioid overdose at 23 after attempting to receive help at a Florida treatment facility.
