TOLEDO, June 6, 2018:
After one year in operation, Unison Health’s Sub-acute Detox
Facility, located at 1212 Cherry Street in Toledo, has
helped hundreds of people take the crucial first steps toward a
life free from opioids and other addictive substances.
Since opening in June
2017, the sub-acute detox program has demonstrated remarkable
effectiveness. Completion rates are in line with the national
average, with an average stay lasting between five and twelve
days. In addition, nearly 40% of clients received outpatient
care from Unison Health within seven days of release,
demonstrating the impact the program has on encouraging people
to maintain their sobriety going forward. Perhaps most
importantly, over 90% of clients were not readmitted to the
hospital within 90 days of discharge.
According to Jeff De
Lay, President and CEO of Unison Health, sub-acute detox is
a key component of Unison Health’s overall mission. “Our goal is
to provide a continuum of care for every client, from the first
days of detox to Recovery Housing post-treatment. We not only
treat the substance abuse disorder, but we also treat behavioral
health issues and provide primary care throughout the process.
That comprehensive care helps foster an environment where true
recovery can happen.”
The sub-acute detox
program begins with a full diagnostic assessment, while
medications are administered to ease the initial symptoms of
withdrawal. This medically assisted withdrawal has been proven
effective in reducing the symptoms and cravings that generally
occur as a user rids his or her body of opiates.
Patients are monitored
24/7 by a team specifically trained in the treatment of detox,
and patients are encouraged to take part in individual and group
therapy sessions designed to help them develop strategies for
sober living post-detox.
Unison Health has been
caring for the people of this region for more than forty years.
They are dedicated to providing effective, accessible and
affordable services. Unison Health accepts Ohio Medicaid and
most private insurances.
