FindLocalTreatment.com is the first platform for finding trusted addiction treatment with availability shown in real-time.
The platform has been searched thousands of times in the Greater Cincinnati Region since its launch three months ago.
Local treatment options
Finding a trustworthy treatment program with room for more patients is one of the largest barriers facing individuals struggling with addiction.
When searching for treatment options online, individuals often find out-of-date and confusing information, leading some to consider expensive providers out of state.
FindLocalTreatment.com is changing that by making it easy for anyone to find treatment locally. By staying local, more individuals can take advantage of their insurance and improve their odds of long-term recovery.
“Finding treatment locally at an accredited facility with capacity is one of the largest barriers individuals face on the path to recovery”, says Dr. Jeffrey Bill, Founder & CEO of Sunrise Treatment Centers. “We partnered with FindLocalTreatment.com to ensure that the community always knows that we’re accredited with the top certifications and accepting patients.”
Building treatment-on-demand is essential to defeating the addiction crisis
To build the first true treatment-on-demand network, FindLocalTreatment partnered with local accredited treatment providers.
These providers update their information on the website every day. This ensures that individuals can accurately filter treatment options based on insurance coverage, real-time availability, substance type, and more.
“Quickly and accurately pairing individuals with local treatment programs that have capacity helps decrease the number of people who fall through the cracks while trying to find help,” says Raj Gupta, co-founder & CEO of FindLocalTreatment.
The FindLocalTreatment.com platform can be used by any individual or family members seeking treatment.
Partnering with a local health system to make comprehensive continuum of care possible
Mercy Health, the largest health care system in the region, was one of FindLocalTreatment’s earliest partners.
Treatment-on-demand is one part of a comprehensive continuum of care. That continuum is spearheaded by the Mercy Health Addiction Treatment Collaborative.
The collaborative is a group of accredited addiction treatment providers looking to improve quality, lower costs, and adhere to care coordination and opiate response guidelines.
FindLocalTreatment.com can be used by first responders and care coordinators to connect individuals at any time.
After a dose of Narcan has been administered, connecting someone to a local treatment center that has availability is critical to begin recovery.
“By combining Narcan availability with treatment-on-demand using FindLocalTreatment.com, we can bridge the gap between those who need treatment with treatment availability,” notes Larry Graham, MD, President of Mercy Health’s Behavioral Health services. “A comprehensive continuum of care is not possible without integration between addiction treatment providers in the community and a hospital system like Mercy Health. We formed the Mercy Health Addiction Treatment Collaborative to create a path to recovery for any patient who comes into our health system.”
Understanding the crisis in real-time
Connecting people to treatment is crucial, but we have to go even further if we want to end the addiction crisis.
Understanding the demand for treatment services within our communities is critical to developing an effective response.
What are the most common addictions in our community? When are individuals searching for treatment? Where do we need more resources to battle addiction?
