The cost of addiction to Healthcare*

  • Addiction is a serious driver of health care costs, estimated at $215 billion annually.
  • Almost half of all emergency room visits for trauma and/or injury are alcohol related.
  • Individuals with addiction problems use four times as many hospital days as non-drinkers.
  • 35% of emergency room patients with an occupational injury are problem drinkers.
  • Heavy drinking contributes to illness in each of the top three causes of death: heart disease, cancer and stroke.
  • One in 14 hospital stays involves addiction.
  • 14% of patients admitted to hospitals have addiction problems.
  • We can help your hospital in reducing its readmission rates. Physical illness and substance use co-morbidity is a significant factor in patient readmission rates. Let us help you to improve outcomes and end these unhealthy and costly cycles.

There is clear research showing that every dollar spent on substance abuse treatment saves $4 in healthcare costs. **

The Solution

iStock_20839965_SMALLWe have to help these persons see that there is another way to live their lives. When you assess or identify that a patient has a drug dependence or addiction problem you are suddenly faced with a much more complicated case. How do you provide quality care in the moment while setting the patient up for long-term success and helping to prevent the resource-costly revolving cycle through your hospital doors?

We recognize that hospital case management and social services departments are under enormous pressure and time constraints. Novus wants to be a resource to you empowering these patients to make a decision to seek long-term sobriety and get on the path toward improved health. An experienced Novus Admissions Coordinator is just a phone call away to assist you with managing the case. If we cannot help them there is a good chance that we will know someone who can. We help patients at Novus, or connect them with other providers who can help, everyday.

“I am a 32 year old male who lived locally in Florida. I was on opiates for 5 years. I can’t believe how I feel today after leaving Novus. For the first time in 5 years I can honestly say I can think again. I feel like I just came out of a coma after 5 years. I haven’t felt this great in so long. Now I know what a body should feel like after drugs. Thank you so much everyone at Novus for bringing my life back to me. I don’t know where I would be without you guys.”

The Individual Program

At Novus Medical Detox Center, we truly understand drug and alcohol addiction, and we employ the latest technology with compassion to help every patient get through their drug or alcohol withdrawal.

Our protocol delivers a much more comfortable withdrawal than most other methods as it is tailor made to the individual’s needs, drug history and physical condition, not like other one-protocol-fits-all programs.

We provide a high degree of attention and comfort with 24/7 medical supervision of each patient’s progress and care at our facility.

The environment includes the patient’s choice of private or shared rooms, internet access, telephone, cable television, where our patients are treated with dignity and compassion by our highly trained and professional staff. Many executives can continue to work from our facility while they are undergoing detox.

Comprehensive Treatment

We offer comprehensive treatment to each patient. This means that we provide all necessary medicines, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and proper hydration based on each patient’s unique DNA and metabolic needs, which also enhances the body’s health, strength and well-being.
