Spero Health Brings Addiction Treatment Help to Ohio with New Clinic in Lancaster
“Overdose deaths in Ohio and the United States set a new record in 2020, and unintentional drug overdose is now one of the leading causes of injury death surpassing motor vehicle crashes. Fairfield County has been hit extremely hard over the years by the drug epidemic and the recent numbers highlight the impact the pandemic had on communities in crises. Cheap access to deadly drugs like Heroin and Fentanyl have dealt our communities a devastating blow causing many to lose their life. In addition to overdose, we continue to hear stories from those in short- and long-term recovery who experienced relapse because of changes in their life. It is critical people have local resources and quick access to addiction treatment services, now more than ever, it’s simply a matter of life and death” said Steve Priest, CEO of Spero Health. At least 5,215 Ohioans fatally overdosed on drugs last year according to new government data, a nearly 22% increase over 2019 numbers.
Spero Health utilizes an innovative evidence-based integrated care model that combines both physical and behavioral healthcare services under one roof. Going into more details about the services patients can expect to receive at Spero Health, David Hayden, Senior VP of Clinical Services said, “Uncertainty and disruptions in daily life are still hitting those with substance use disorder particularly hard, and we want everyone to know that recovery is possible. Spero Health’s goal is to engage patients where they are in their journey and personalize the program to meet their specific needs so they can stabilize allowing for interventions to support sustained recovery efforts. Patients will have weekly access to a physician or nurse practitioner, counseling and recovery support services that help link them back to the community to address other issues such as housing, food insecurity, employment and much more. We want to make it as easy as possible for patients to get the help they need that’s both affordable and close to home.”
