IN THE BEGINNING(Plymouth Campus) A Small SUDs Detox (10 Beds) A Large SUDs Rehab (50 Beds)
Today(Plymouth Campus) Inpatient Psychiatric Unit (16 Beds) Dual-Diagnosis Detox Unit (24 Beds) Dual-Diagnosis Rehab Unit (16 Beds) SUDs Detox Unit (30 Beds) SUDs Rehab Unit (16 Beds) Outpatient Services
Why the changes in bed configuration? • As substance abuse services moved from block grant funding to 3rd party insurance funding; insurance companies became the primary payer and began managing the care of clients significantly reducing access and length of stay for SUDs Rehab Services. It became necessary to greatly expand SUDs Detox Services to support the SUDs Rehab Services.
Why a Dual Diagnosis Unit and a Inpatient Psychiatric Unit? • Insurance Companies began purchasing free-standing specialized Dual Diagnosis Unit instead of Hospital Based Programs to reduce costs and to serve clients in a less restrictive level of care. • With the addition of the Dual Diagnosis Unit adding an Inpatient Psychiatric Unit allowed us to better meet the needs of our clients and brought additional value to our continuum of care.
HISTORY OF OUR OUTPATIENT SERVICES • Began with a small SUDs clinic on our Plymouth Campus. • Today we operate six Outpatient Clinics located in multiple communities in our region. • Why? • To build a stronger continuum of care. • To bring more value to our Payer Relationships. • To improve client treatment outcomes.

More Challenges • Shorter length of stays in 24 hour care programs causing staff burn-out and the need for a higher number of admissions to support the programs • The need to collect more data for outcome measures and continuous quality improvement
Financial Challenges • Funding for Electronic Medical Records • Collection of Co-Pays and Deductibles • Inadequate Reimbursement • Contacting and billing complexities due to large amount of payers • Clients losing benefits while in treatment • Still a significant number of uninsured clients seeking services
