BreakThru Unique Advantage

BreakThru is a medical withdrawal management service located within WVU Medicine Reynolds Memorial Hospital. Patients who have problems with drugs or alcohol are medically stabilized and managed on the medical/surgical unit, just like any other patient recovering from surgery or other medical conditions, preserving dignity and confidentiality.

Using a multidisciplinary team approach, withdrawal symptoms are medically managed throughout the withdrawal period, ensuring safe and effective medical outcomes.

We offer an innovative medical collaboration between the hospital and community referral partners so that we can establish a personalized aftercare discharge plan. Patients are then followed for one year to determine recovery outcomes.

BreakThru is devoted to creating a healthier, better life for those impacted by substance use and/or abuse.
