Why hospitals refer to briteLife at hanover

We offer a higher level of care than most clients have experienced in addiction treatment programs. We focus on what people can do, rather than what they can’t do.

With drug overdoses at record highs in this country, many people never get the quality treatment they need.

However, discerning between residential treatment centers can be difficult.

Addiction Treatment Referrals from Emergency Rooms Saves Lives

For decades, substance use disorder sufferers have spent a lot of time in hospital emergency rooms. Whether it’s an overdose, acute withdrawal symptoms or related health problems, hospitals are a crucial touchpoint to connect people with addiction help. One study done at Yale found some interesting results when they tested three test groups against a control group. Although the study was relatively small, it does point out that some straightforward opioid addiction protocols in place can save lives and start patients in recovery. Here’s what they found:

  • Emergency rooms are a higher stress environment where the patient is likely worried about their health. ER doctors can use the hospital visit as an intervention to advise and advocate a more receptive patient in trouble.
  • Prescribing Suboxone or buprenorphine products has a positive impact on treatment results.

The fact is when emergency room procedures are put in place when substance use disorders are noticed, it can be a life-or-death moment for the patient. Hospital doctors play a vital role in addiction treatment. How physicians reply in these circumstances could move patients toward recovery or put them back in the chaotic world of addiction.
