New Day Recovery Bristol has been added to our services at Southwest Virginia Community Health Center’s (SVCHS) Twin City Medical Center.
New Day Recovery (NDR) is a program of SVCHS that began operations in 2016 in an effort to provide substance use disorder treatment in a primary care office based setting using behavioral therapy, case management, and Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT). While the primary focus has been treating people with opioid use disorder, the services are also useful to patients with any substance use disorder.
The current New Day Recovery program is in Saltville, Va. and supports 100 people in their recovery.
“Our mission is to improve access to effective and evidenced based primary medical and behavioral integrated healthcare to people who want to be in recovery from substance use disorders,” Marcy Rosenbaum, LCSW, Behavioral Health Director said.
New Day Recovery (NDR) is an approved Preferred Office Based Opioid Treatment (OBOT) provider by the Virginia Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) and has been used by DMAS to train other potential OBOT providers in Virginia. OBOTs provide lifesaving FDA approved prescriptions to patients with Opioid Use Disorder, mostly buprenorphine/naloxone, as well as behavioral health counseling and case management. Medication is not dispensed from New Day Recovery, only prescriptions and words of encouragement.
“Our goal is not only to stop the abuse of substances, but also to help people recover their lives back. Similar to managing heart disease or diabetes, medication for the disease of opioid use disorder may be necessary, but lifestyle changes are required for sustained recovery. Through the comprehensive OBOT services of New Day Recovery Bristol, we hope to add to the communities efforts to heal people from addictions,” Rosenbaum said.
New patient referrals are now being accepted with the first day of assessment appointments beginning on Thursday, December 19, 2019. For more information or to make an appointment, please call New Day Recovery Bristol at 276-496-4492.
