BRENTWOOD, Tenn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Spero Health, a national leader who has helped more than 35,000 patients on their journey to stable recovery from addiction, announced today it will open a new clinic in Coshocton, OH. Located at 1404 Chestnut Street, they will begin seeing patients on Friday, October 28th. Responding to the growing demand for local, affordable, and comprehensive addiction treatment services, Spero Health has over 95 clinics throughout Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia and Indiana and is in network with Ohio Medicaid and most commercial insurance plans. Individuals who need addiction treatment services are encouraged to walk-in for help or call: 866-755-4258 for more information or to schedule an immediate appointment.
This new Coshocton clinic opens in-line with Spero Health’s aggressive expansion plans to address community needs for individuals to have local access to quality care close to home. “Substance use disorder is a crisis that claims tens of thousands of American lives each year. While Ohio showed promise of the drug epidemic slowing, recent data shows drug trends moving in the wrong direction. As access to pain medication dried up, synthetic opioids, including fentanyl, became the most common drugs involved in drug overdose deaths in the United States. The surge of deaths will only continue due to the spread of a deadly street drug like fentanyl which is cheap and 50 times more potent than heroin. In Coshocton, we want to be a solution to families, friends and neighbors who are struggling with addiction giving them a safe place to turn and by meeting them where they are in their journey. We offer immediate access to care, close to home,” said Steve Priest, CEO of Spero Health.
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, “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.”
