Client in the News: Novus Medical Detox On Unlikely Drop in Opioid Abuse



Not Solving The Problem

JoTo PR Client, Novus Medical Detox, was featured in an article in Modern Healthcare titled Cigna’s move to drop OxyContin coverage unlikely to curb opioid misuse

Cigna Corp., said in early October that they will stop covering prescriptions for the opioid pain medication, Oxycontin next year as a plan to reduce the opioid crisis around the world. Various addiction experts say this is more of a headline than something that will make a dent in the world of opioid abuse.

While a definite step in the right direction one expert, Kent Runyon of Novus, isn’t impressed with the move and said: “Do I think this is going to have a significant impact on overdose deaths? No I don’t see how this step would do that.”

Novus Medical Detox Center has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for Behavioral Health Care Accreditation as an inpatient medical detox facility.
