Those healing from substance use disorder can receive assistance.
A new addiction treatment center has opened in Woodbridge. Run by BrightView, the outpatient facility stands at 4899 Prince William Parkway.
Counseling, medication assisted treatment, social services and peer support are among the services available, according to a release from BrightView.
“BrightView brings resources to the communities we serve,” Chief Clinical Officer at BrightView Dr. Navdeep Kang said in the release. “For those looking for help in their battle with addiction, BrightView’s presence means residents have a new ally that responds with a sense of urgency to give people with substance use disorder access to the highest-quality medical care available.”
A Virginia Department of Health report showed that between 2019 and June 2020 the amount of emergency room visits associated with overdoses in Prince William County rose 75 percent, according to the BrightView release. They went up 47 percent across the Commonwealth.
In the first 90 days that someone is in BrightView’s outpatient program, average jail time is reduced by almost 70 percent. Within the first three months, the number of visits to emergency rooms goes down 33 percent. After a year, this decreases by 50 percent.
For assistance, reach out to BrightView any day or time by calling 833-510-HELP (4357), and appointments may be set up on the BrightView website. The addiction treatment center takes walk-in appointments until 3 p.m. during the week. There are also telehealth and virtual treatment capabilities.
All types of insurance are accepted, and help signing up for coverage is available for anyone who doesn’t have insurance.
