RUSSELLVILLE - River Valley Medical Wellness clinic (RVMW) and ARVAC / Freedom House Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Center are excited to announce a new collaboration that will expand health care access and addiction services for residents of Arkansas. This outpatient clinic provides medication assisted treatment (MAT) and counseling for patients suffering from opioid, stimulant, alcohol and other substance use disorders. They offer both in-person and telemedicine options for patients seeking recovery from addiction.
Currently, the MAT clinic is based in Russellville on the grounds of Freedom House Rehabilitation Center, but with the advent of telemedicine and COVID-19 changes to care, has begun providing telemedicine services across the state of Arkansas. While other clinics providing MAT services are typically on a "cash basis", RVMW and Freedom House accept insurances, including Medicaid.
This collaboration between the groups is an effort to meet the patient where they are in the recovery process and provide responsive and comprehensive care. River Valley Medical Wellness has three current medical providers: Dr Kristin Martin, DO, FAAFP, Jamie Zimmerman, APRN and Lindsey Sharp, APRN, who have each been working in addiction medicine for the past several years in conjunction with Freedom House. For those patients who require more intensive services, Freedom House also offers residential treatment and sober living opportunities.
