During the height of the pandemic, Hamilton County saw a 34 percent decrease in opioid-related deaths and a greater than 50 percent increase in the number of people receiving treatment. Speaking about this, CEO of Spero Health Steve Priest said, "Hamilton County has a wonderful Coalition who started planning early in 2020 to put measures in place to lessen the impact the pandemic had on our most vulnerable. While most other communities experienced a surge in overdose related deaths during that time, Hamilton County worked with community partners to mitigate the damage we saw happen in other areas. People really struggled with forced social isolation, loss of support and access to care, and this community worked extremely hard to keep lines of care open. Our goal is to join these efforts as another resource on the front line to continue to turn the tide of an out of control drug epidemic and bring hope and restoration to the lives of people struggling with addiction. In Cincinnati we want to bring immediate relief to families, friends and neighbors who are struggling with this disease by offering quick access to high quality care." said Priest.
Spero Health utilizes an innovative evidence-based integrated care model that combines both physical and behavioral healthcare services under one roof. Going into more details about the services patients can expect to receive at Spero Health, David Hayden, Senior VP of Clinical Services said, "Uncertainty and disruptions in daily life are still hitting those with substance use disorder particularly hard, and we want everyone to know that recovery is possible. 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. Patients will have weekly access to a physician or nurse practitioner, counseling and recovery support services that help link them back to the community to address other issues such as housing, food insecurity, employment and much more. We want to make it as easy as possible for patients to get the help they need that's both affordable and close to home."
