Opioid epidemic reaching new levels at hospitals

August 21. 2017 – The latest analysis of the nation’s drug crisis highlights the importance of effective treatment for those struggling with addiction.

The American Thoracic Society released a recent study examining deaths due to overdose in hospital intensive care units. Researchers have determined that the number of deaths has doubled over the past seven years, CBS3 reports.

Cost of treatment and the number of admissions have also increased, signaling a need for early treatment:

The report also finds that, despite all the care we can provide in the intensive care unit, often it is too late to help many of these patients.

They need mechanical ventilation, acute dialysis, life support, and round-the-clock care.

The key is getting to the problem early and preventing it from happening in the first place.

If you or a loved one are living with addiction and have any questions about the Malvern Intervention Model or the Malvern 90-Day Model, please give us a call at 610.MALVERN (610.625.8376).
