Nursing Home Adds Substance Abuse Recovery To Long-term Care Offerings

One nursing home is beginning to integrate substance abuse rehabilitation and recovery with long-term care facilities.  Baby boomers with addictions are predicted to increase to 5-7 million in 2020, double the amount since 2006. In order to combat the additions, the nursing home has opened eight beds for patients battling rehabilitation and recovery.

The rehabilitation program combines physical, mental and psychological support, along with counseling.  The patients are staying an average of 23 days and the facility is servicing 480 patients per year.  For more, read the story.
