Beacons Names Arms Acres Provider of the Month
Our Provider of the Month for July is: Arms Acres Drug & Rehab Centers! Arms Acres is the largest Substance Treatment Provider in New York State with over 400 inpatient beds and 9 outpatient sites. They provide inpatient medically assisted withdrawal services along with concomitant rehabilitation services.
Arms Acres is an active partner with Beacon, and consistently performs well on quality metrics related to initiation and engagement in treatment; connecting members to Medication Assisted Treatment early in their course of treatment; and reducing readmissions to Emergency Rooms or higher care. Arms Acres maintains a strong clinical collaboration with Beacon, participating in a variety of innovative projects and pilots that aim to improve the clinical outcomes of our members. They have been an active participant in the Beacon Project ECHO clinic since 2019, and most recently has been a strong collaborative partner in the Changing Pathways program – an approach that aims to increase community tenure by connecting members with medications for Opioid Use Disorder and/or Alcohol Use Disorder and wrap around PEER services. I’d like to thank Roy Wallach, Executive Vice President for Liberty Behavioral Management Group, for taking the time to meet with Cathie Cohen, Provider Relations Manager & Katherine Sparks, PQM Manager. Cathie & Katherine, thank you for the continued support that you provide to Arms Acres. Please join me in congratulating Arms Acres and all of their incredible teams & staff!
