Making an Impact on the Opioid Epidemic
The Jordan Hospital Club, Inc., a nonprofit organization serving as ambassadors and fundraisers for Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Plymouth (BID-Plymouth), is moved by the opioid epidemic facing our communities. There are complex and immense challenges faced by patients needing care for behavioral health and substance use issues. The opioid crisis is destroying lives, families, and communities.
BID-Plymouth is making a meaningful impact through the Integrated Healthcare & Substance Use Collaborative (IHSUC), an innovative model of care that brings physicians, nurses and social workers together in a primary care office, to treat those patients over the age of 12, with medical and behavioral health/substance use needs and to provide support to those who care for them.
Healthcare providers in the IHSUC work closely with school systems and local agencies to provide comprehensive treatment programs for patients and their families, whether in an emergency situation or ongoing, as they navigate the path to recovery.
Since its inception in 2014, HOPEFEST has raised nearly $200,000 for the Integrated Healthcare & Substance Use Collaborative. The Jordan Hospital Club invites you to join us as our communities come together to raise funds, awareness and to give HOPE.
