Spectrum Health Systems Partners with Correct Care Solutions in Maine
|By Spectrum Health Systems, Inc.
Spectrum Health Systems, Inc. is pleased to announce its new partnership with Correct Care Solutions (CCS). The State of Maine Department of Corrections (MDOC) recently combined all correctional health care services, including medical services, mental health care, substance abuse treatment and pharmacy services into one contract.
Under the new bundled contract, Spectrum Health Systems will continue to provide substance abuse treatment, assessment and reentry case management services, albeit as a subcontractor to CCS - the organization selected to manage all correctional health care services for the Department.
"We've enjoyed an outstanding partnership with MDOC since 2003 and look forward to continuing our advancement of evidence-based services" said Christopher Petrozzi, Executive Vice President of Correctional Services for Spectrum. "We're proud to be part of a team in Maine that's invested in the cause of public safety by providing treatment services directed at the known predictors of recidivism."
Spectrum's Correctional Treatment Division was established in 1993 to provide specialized treatment to criminal offenders with a history of chronic substance abuse. Working in partnership with host institutions, correctional personnel and parole authorities, Spectrum's Correctional Treatment Division prepares program participants for maintaining a lasting recovery, thereby reducing the risk of relapse and recidivism over the long term.
Correct Care Solutions is a national provider of medical, mental health, care management and medical technology services to correctional systems serving both adult and juvenile populations.
