Spero Health opens 3 new outpatient addiction treatment clinics

Brentwood, Tenn.-based Spero Health opened three new outpatient addiction treatment clinics, according to a Sept. 26 news release.

The new Spero Health Clinics are located in Shively, Ky., Columbia, Tenn., and Abingdon, Va.

Spero Health Senior VP of Clinical Services David Hayden said that patients will have weekly access to a physician or nurse practitioner, counseling, and recovery support services.

"Spero Health's goal is to engage patients where they are in their journey and personalize the program to meet their specific needs so they can stabilize allowing for interventions to support sustained recovery efforts," Mr. Hayden said.

According to the CDC, deaths from drug overdose have topped over a million since the center began collecting data. Spero Health CEO Steve Priest said that those numbers have an overwhelming impact on communities.

"In the past there has been a gap in access to addiction treatment services and we are working hard to expand services so more people in more places have access to lifesaving care close to home," Mr. Priest said.
