CHI St. Vincent is introducing a new addiction recovery program in Little Rock.
Working in partnership with Bradford Health Services, the program will be located at the CHI St. Vincent Infirmary in Little Rock. This program, slated to be the first of its kind in Arkansas, will provide a full range of care that includes both inpatient and outpatient components.
The Addiction Recovery Program will provide a private entrance to maintain patient confidentiality. This program will feature inpatient suites for 30 residential patients, 10 detox spaces and staff trained in addiction treatment.
“The opioid crisis was a pandemic ravaging our communities long before anyone had even heard of COVID-19 and our healing ministry has long felt called to provide support to Arkansans suffering from addiction and other addictive diseases,” CHI St. Vincent Infirmary chief medical officer Dr. Gerry Jones said in a statement. “For too long, the healthcare infrastructure has struggled to get them and their families the full continuum of care they need to help them overcome these challenges. Now, with our partners at Bradford Health Services, we’re able to make that compassionate care possible in a setting appropriate to the needs of our patients.”
Some the services offered through the program include emergency consultation, outpatient counseling, intensive outpatient programs, partial hospitalization, adult detox, long-term residential recovery, medication assisted treatment, extended care program, continuing care services, family support and educational services.
