Ascension Recovery Services’ team of experienced professionals have successfully launched addiction treatment centers that focus on two goals: quality care and a financially viable and sustainable business model. The need for quality addiction treatment continues to rise and starting your own treatment center can be a great way to have a profitable business that makes a difference. However, if you have decided to open your own treatment program, there are many factors to consider.
Ascension Recovery Services offers program development services for individuals and hospital systems that are creating substance use disorder treatment programs. One of the main questions that our clients ask is, “Which service should I offer?”
To answer this question, it is important to understand which services are appropriate for an individual, the location of the services and a client’s budget. Seeking treatment is the first step in beginning the road to recovery for substance use disorder, but it can be confusing to know where to start. With different levels of care, it is necessary to understand which one is appropriate for an individual’s situation and needs. The continuum of care includes services such as:
- Residential Treatment
- Partial Hospitalization
- Intensive Outpatient
- General Outpatient
- Sober Living
On March 4, 2019, WVU Medicine launched its new facility the WVU Medicine Center for Hope and Healing, a medically managed withdrawal stabilization and residential treatment center for individuals affected by substance use disorders (SUD).
WVU Medicine and the WVU Department of Behavioral Medicine and Psychiatry already offer a comprehensive menu of outpatient services for people with SUD, and the addition of withdrawal management and 28-day rehabilitation completes the in-house continuum of care for these disorders. The Center is a 29,305 square-foot addiction treatment facility that offers 12 beds for subacute medically managed withdrawal residential care and 30 beds for residential care up to 28 days.
Ascension Recovery Services was honored to work with WVU Medicine, WVU Department of Behavioral Medicine and Psychiatry to help develop this program.Read on to learn more about the residential treatment center, and how Ascension helped.
