AdventHealth, the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office, Seminole County EMS/Fire Rescue, and the Board of County Commissioners are launching a new addictions recovery center in Sanford, Fla. The center will provide clinically supported residential substance abuse treatment when it opens in early 2020.

According to an AdventHealth press release, the addictions recovery center will eventually house up to 40 men and 10 women when fully operational, and will provide up to 30 days of overnight care. In addition to mental health and medication assisted treatment, patients will be supported with services that address their educational, vocational, behavioral, and housing needs upon discharge. Clients could be referred directly from AdventHealth, the jail, or from the community.

Under the new partnership, a substance abuse coordinator will be based out of the AdventHealth Altamonte Springs ER to help navigate care for patients who need addictions treatment. The coordinator will track patients during their inpatient stay at the hospital, and then for 30 days after discharge, to ensure they are connected with the appropriate treatment and community resources.
