Ashley Regional Medical Center Adds StepOne Service For Patients Battling Addiction
April 10, 2023
Vernal, UT (April 10, 2023) – Ashley Regional Medical Center is now offering StepOne Service which is an inpatient, hospital-based 3 - 5 day Acute Withdrawal Management (detox) service available to adults requiring medical management of withdrawal symptoms from alcohol and/or opioids.
"Across the nation, substance use disorder impacts millions of people and their families. The good news is there is hope - addiction can be successfully treated," said Wes Taylor, CEO of Ashley Regional Medical Center. “Ashley Regional is dedicated to helping people in the Basin deal with issues that impact their health and wellness. This new service is just one more avenue where we can provide assistance."
Around-the-clock medical care is provided by the hospital’s designated doctors and existing nurses who are orientated and trained during implementation of the service. This clinical team monitors each patient, while using protocol-specific medications in order to reduce the severity of withdrawal symptoms. Providing this specific care decreases the dangers of withdrawal throughout this first step of the individual’s treatment process.
The StepOne Service staff continues discussions with the patient throughout the inpatient stay to develop an individualized discharge plan that includes appropriate referrals to the next level of care.
StepOne Service is provided through a partnership with Evergreen Healthcare Partners, LLC. More information can be found at www.steponeservice.com.
This service is covered by most insurance plans accepted by the hospital.
