Behavioral health unit added to SNF
Riverdale Nursing Home, a 146-bed facility in the Bronx, NY, has added a new Medical Behavioral Health Unit.
The unit includes a program called Healing Hands, which is designed to help those in drug or alcohol recovery. Recovery is assisted through medications such as methadone or suboxone along with psychology professionals.
The 16-bed dedicated unit will allow residents to participate in daily recreational activities in other parts of the building.
