Addiction Treatment Services Expanded

 In Nurses Weekly

Eleanor Health, the first addiction and mental health provider delivering convenient and comprehensive care through a value-based payment structure, today announced the virtual opening of its Edison and Verona locations with in-person services to be offered in the coming weeks.

The openings come at a critical time as residents simultaneously battle the COVID-19 pandemic and addiction epidemic. Between January and November 2020, New Jersey reported 2,791 suspected overdose deaths and 13,501 narcan administrations, underscoring the need for treatment providers to expand their services and delivery options.

“Middlesex and Essex counties are within the top four for overdose deaths in the state,” explained Co-Founder of Eleanor Health Srishti Mirchandani. “Eleanor is ready to serve the Edison and Verona communities during this incredibly stressful time by providing personalized support for substance misuse, addiction, and behavioral health needs.”

Providing flexible services without barriers, virtual appointments are available to all New Jersey residents regardless of geographical location.

“Now more than ever, people need personalized care that meets them right where they are,” says Eleanor Health Clinic Operations Senior Manager Chris Borkowski. “Eleanor Health’s hope is to reduce the stigma associated with accessing care and to be a continuous source of support for those in need.”

These openings mark Eleanor’s second and third clinics in New Jersey, leveraging telehealth, technology, and Eleanor’s care team including medical, nursing, therapy, and recovery support. Eleanor Health is partnering with Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey as a value-based care provider for addiction treatment services focused on expanding access to care throughout New Jersey. Services include Medication Assisted Treatment, therapy and counseling, psychiatric evaluation, recovery resources, and telehealth services.
