BAART BERLIN MOVES TO A NEW FACILITY TO ACCOMMODATE THE GROWING RECOVERY COMMUNITY IN VERMONT
Berlin, VT (March 31, 2016) – Since 2004, BAART Programs has been an integral part of the substance use disorder treatment community in Vermont. The success of the model implemented there has given thousands of people access to life-saving care, and the continued growth of the program created a need for BAART to expand their practice in Central Vermont. In March, the treatment program moved its offices from Granger Road to a larger facility on Comstock Road in Berlin.
The model which has been so successful is referred to as a hub and spoke model. The BAART Berlin clinic operates as a hub in Central Vermont, meaning that they provide comprehensive opioid use disorder treatment, coordinate services with other treatment providers and community physicians and act as a health care home for their patients. This integrated care is beneficial to patients who might otherwise have difficulty in accessing quality medical services. As a hub, BAART Berlin forms referral partnerships with other providers, or spokes, who manage stabilized patients in a less structured environment in the community.
The hub and spoke model implemented in Vermont has garnered national attention as a model system. These programs make community partnerships and collaborative efforts with other providers a priority, resulting in increased access to evidence-based care and improved outcomes for patients.
BAART Programs operates not only the newly expanded hub location, BAART Berlin, but also operates hub and spoke locations in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, BAART Newport and BAART St. Johnsbury.
