Fayette Regional Hospital Detox Center
FAYETTE REGIONAL HOSPITAL, CONNERSVILLE, INDIANA
Fayette Regional Health System was awarded nearly $10 million in federal grant money from the Indiana State Department of Health through the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program – Part B. The grant allows Fayette Regional to create an all-inclusive 4.0 detoxification unit and programs with special attention to those diagnosed with HIV. Fayette Regional hospital and its ancillary service locations are in the very heart of the opioid epidemic in Indiana. Fayette Regional is the number one hospital (per capita) in Indiana for saving lives of overdose patients. Within the last year, Fayette County has noted a 40% increase in drug/alcohol deaths with the highest drug poisoning death rate (per capita) of any county in the state of Indiana.
Terrex Construction provided construction services for the project. The 46 bed unit, located on the hospital’s third floor, was open and operational by July 2018. The unit is licensed to handle medical/surgical patients in a psychiatric-safe environment with priority given to patients who are HIV positive. The program is a comprehensive continuum of services designed to promote recovery and allow individuals to fully integrate into society, assist with setting goals, maintaining long-term sobriety, accessing needed social services, transition to the next level of care, avoiding gaps in service and rapid response to threats of relapse.
