HVCS & St. Lukes Cornwall Hospital Connect Overdose Patients To Long-Term Aftercare Help

Friday, February 22nd, 2019

St. Lukes Cornwall Hospital in NewburghWhen someone comes to a standard emergency room because of an opioid overdose, the staff do everything they can to revive them–but what happens after that? At St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital (SLCH) in Newburgh, they provide overdose patients with a short-term prescription for buprenorphine, a pharmaceutical which prevents withdrawl symptoms without providing a high. This short course of buprenorphine is known as induction and it’s the first step in assisting the client to discontinue or markedly diminish their use of other opioids. SLCH can only offer the induction phase, not a longer-term prescription program, though.

That’s where our Health Hub comes in. We recently began a collaboration with SLCH in which we transition clients from the induction phase to long-term bupe use (known as a Medication Assisted Treatment Program or MAT).

Hospital staff and clients appreciate that HVCS’ services are low-threshold. Clients who come to the Health Hub are able to receive Buprenorphine treatment with out the fear of being discharged because they either relapse or are using another substance. We expect for this collaboration to be very successful and are looking forward to work closely with other hospitals as they begin to look at the same model as St Luke’s Cornwall Hospital.

As you may know, Sullivan County has some of the highest rates of opioid overdose in New York State. In just the first seven months of 2017, Sullivan County has experienced a reported 20 overdose deaths. From 2013-2016, there were approximately 75 reported opioid overdose deaths. We know these numbers are higher, and continue to increase due to access to fentanyl. We are seeking to increase the volume of providers in and around your county that are able to offer medication assisted treatment (MAT) to people using opioids whom could benefit from buprenorphine (or “suboxone”).

Attached is a flyer with further information, including location, online registration, and more details. Further information will be sent out to confirmed attendees. Light refreshments will be provided. Registration closes on November 29th at 5pm.
