COOKEVILLE – A ribbon cutting was recently held for the new office of Spero Health, located at 225 N. Willow Ave.
Spero Health, Inc. is anintegrated healthcare services organization specializing in local and affordable outpatient care for individuals suffering from substance use disorder.
Spero Health provides local and affordable care for more than 6,000 people throughout Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio and Tennessee. They accept TennCare and most commercial insurance plans.
In the last decade, more than 650,000 people have died from a drug overdose, according to the Center for Disease Control. “As the numbers of individuals who die as a result of substance use disorders continues to worsen, it is more critical now than ever that our communities have access to a local, high quality solution to address the needs right there at home.” said Steve Priest, Spero Health CEO. “Our team is not only focused on saving lives, but on helping strengthen the communities that we serve. It is our desire to be an active member of the local healthcare community and a partner in the fight against this deadly disease.”
“Substance use disorders are treatable but there isn’t a one-size fits all solution, which is why Spero Health considers each unique patient need when developing treatment plans and setting goals for the future,” said Dr. Harold Chertok. “Spero Health’s approach is designed to provide rapid access to care and allow individuals to remain in their communities throughout treatment so they can continue working and caring for their families, which ultimately enhances their quality of life.”
