Origins Behavioral HealthCare is uniquely positioned to provide the most intensive level of treatment for medically and psychiatrically complex patients with substance use disorders. Origins’ program is one of very few that provides treatment at the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) Criteria level of 3.5 or 3.7, indicating medically complex care for patients who require intensive inpatient treatment.
The 3.5 and 3.7 ASAM Criteria levels include 24-hour nursing and daily physician care as well as counseling services for severe problems in the dimensions of 1,2 and 3. Respectively, these ASAM dimensions are defined as exploration of:
For instance, we treat patients who have advanced liver disease, including cirrhosis and complications related to cirrhosis such as cardiac and respiratory issues, issues related to chronic pain, arthritis and mobility, and cognitive dysfunction. From a psychiatric standpoint, we also receive patients who have a complex history of trauma as well as complicated cases of bipolar, severe major depressive and anxiety disorders.
Under our advanced care, patients at Hannah’s House, Headwaters, Origins Recovery Center, and Hanley Center receive services resulting in good levels of medical stabilization and completion of therapeutic treatment. For example, Origins patients are provided with various modalities, including a 12-Step facilitation model, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy.
Since the majority of older adult cases fall within the ASAM Criteria level of 3.7 of higher, our level of care is highly beneficial in meeting the needs of this demographic. Hanley’s Center for Brain Recovery also provides psychological and neuropsychological testing, neurofeedback, and other CBT modalities.
Our comprehensive multidisciplinary team approach includes daily team meetings for an hour at a time, regular family consultations, referrals for specialty treatment, and close medical and psychiatric follow-up visits. These meetings are used to discuss and present cases and provide effective solutions.
We have been able to accept most of these cases and treat them successfully in an effective and evidence-based manner. By offering these select services, Origins is able to provide better long-term recovery outcomes for patients and their families, meeting difficult challenges in a rewarding way.
