Unison Health Marks First Year of Providing Sub-Acute Detox
 

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.
