Adventist Health hospital in rural Clear Lake, California is helping expand their Medication Assisted Treatment program for patients suffering from opioid addiction. With help from PHI’s California Bridge program, the hospital is able to treat people with medication for addiction in the emergency department as they enter care and help them coordinate the treatment they need after discharge from the hospital.
Tina Allen, a a substance use navigator at Adventist Health said, “For the first time, instead of just discharging a patient from the emergency department we will be able to provide an opportunity for them to get into recovery and connected to services the same day or next day.”
