NEW YORK, Aug. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Riverdale Nursing Home is a 146-bed facility and provides a diversity of specialized programs designed for their residents' individual needs. In addition to the new Medical Behavioral Health Unit, which focuses on patients with behavioral disturbances related to old age with other medical issues, there is another program called Healing Hands. This program deals with patients dealing with drug or alcohol recovery that requires short or long term medical care. This is a specialized unit where the patients' medical needs will be managed while their recovery is assisted through medications such as methadone or suboxone, and support from our psychiatrist, psychologist, and social worker as well as the "healing hands" of our physicians and nurses who are here 24/7 to assist and aid the patients on their road to recovery.
There will be a 16-bed dedicated unit as well as specified staff that are trained in the recovery of drug addiction in the Healing Hands program. They will also be included in the regular daily recreational activities along with the other residents. Riverdale Nursing Home also accepts many of the insurances available to the public.
