Join our AIA Columbus Academy of Architecture for Health (AAH) at their next committee meeting on May 27!
Substance use disorders are medical conditions that impact mental, physical, and emotional health. The separation of substance use disorder treatment from mainstream culture and health care has created obstacles to successful care coordination and long-term holistic health. Today, 23 million Americans are in some form of recovery. Currently, only 25% of those people are in a formal recovery program. Successful care coordination requires extra effort to integrate screening, assessments, interventions, and use of medications within general health systems. The separation of Substance Abuse Disorder treatment from mainstream healthcare, and the stereotypes of the individual receiving care, fragments the individual, the family, and the community. At this session we’ll talk to the Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health Board of Franklin County to learn about treatments and talk to architects on how to integrate substance use disorder treatment into mainstream healthcare design.
