Gettysburg, Pa. (September 30, 2018) – OPEN MINDS has released the September edition of their management newsletter, The Addiction Treatment Innovation Edition: A Guide To The Changing Addiction Treatment Market. This issue is focused on the how executives of provider organizations are developing addiction treatment programs for a changing market.

“The addiction treatment landscape has changed dramatically over the past decade. Financial parity, the spike in opioid addiction, the emergence of new pharmaceutical and technological treatments for addiction—together, these factors have changed the market demand characteristics for addiction treatment services,” said OPEN MINDS Chief Executive Officer, Monica E. Oss. “This issue of the OPEN MINDS Management Newsletter is focused on the addiction treatment market—and how provider organizations are developing new treatment models in the changing landscape.”

The issue is headlined by Ms. Oss in her article, Building A New Addiction Treatment Strategy For A New Addiction Treatment Market, which provides an overview of the key policy changes and market trends shaping addiction treatment for service provider organizations. The issue also includes the OPEN MINDS best practice model for innovative new service line development in New Service Line Development: The OPEN MINDS Step-By-Step Approach To Developing Innovative Programs. This article provides a step-by-step approach reinvigorating a dated service line—or developing an entirely new model.

The issue also includes an on-the-ground perspective on the addiction treatment market, with two innovative program profiles—Rural Technology-Assisted Addiction Treatment: The Chestnut Health System Model and Addiction Treatment Using Digital Treatment Support: The Hazelden Betty Ford Model—and two interviews with provider organization executives about their program experience—Integrated Care & Addiction Treatment: The Spero Health Model and Addiction Treatment Embedded in Supportive Housing: The RHD Model.
