Clearview Treatment Services at Mount St. Mary's Hospital receives New York state approval for expansion

Thu, Apr 13th 2017 11:05 am

The New York State Department of Health and the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) have approved the plans by Mount St. Mary's Hospital to expand its inpatient chemical dependency rehabilitation service, known as Clearview Treatment Services.

The expansion will add eight treatment beds to the current 22 beds operated on the fourth floor of Mount St. Mary's Hospital. Work on the $800,000 project will begin immediately and is expected to be completed this summer.

Clearview, which is licensed by OASAS, has a waiting list of individuals seeking treatment. The additional capacity will help meet the need for the service in the community.

"Mount St. Mary's and Catholic Health recognize there is an opiate dependency crisis in Western New York," said Gary C. Tucker, FACHE, president and CEO of Mount St. Mary's Hospital. "This expansion will help us meet the growing need for inpatient treatment services."

Clearview is a confidential program dedicated to the holistic care of people whose lives have been affected by alcohol and/or drugs. A thorough assessment of each patient's needs becomes the basis for a personalized care program designed to help individuals manage their addictions and successfully reintegrate into the community.

Services include: 24-hour medical care, including methadone maintenance from a professionally trained and compassionate staff; traditional and nontraditional approaches to recovery to meet individual needs; and specialized programming, including services for pregnant women, and help with domestic violence, trauma and mental health issues.

To meet the mental health needs of its patients, Dr. Dianna Bruno, an in-house clinical psychologist, and Dr. Norma Panahon, psychiatrist, are available to provide treatment for psychiatric problems.
