Brattleboro Retreat, a psychiatric and addiction treatment hospital in Vermont, will implement a financial sustainability plan that includes layoffs for 85 workers and service terminations, according to the VT Digger

The hospital plans to end five programs by the end of the year, including its medication-assisted therapy for opioid addiction, an outpatient addiction management program and a pain management program. 

Due to the scaleback of programs, 85 workers will be laid off, the hospital said. Affected employees were given a 60-day notice on Oct. 23, according to the report. 

The hospital cut $8 million from its annual budget in an effort to shore up finances and prepare for long-term sustainability, the VT Digger reported.
