Spero Health has opened its second clinic in central Indiana with a new outpatient care facility in Greenwood. The new clinic at 7750 Madison Avenue is expected to meet the needs of an underserved area.
Spero Health Central Indiana medical director, Darrin Mangiacarne, will serve as the lead physician in the new clinic. His background focuses on substance use, disorders, treatment and prevention. According to the Centers for Disease Control, Indiana saw some of the nation’s largest spikes in overdose deaths in 2017 with 1,800 deaths, which was a 37 percent increase over the previous year.
“The time to act is now. Recovery can be an attainable goal for people who seek treatment. As more people become aware of the life-saving, community-based option Spero Health offers through utilization of medication, recovery support services and counseling, the greater chance we have of stabilizing the epidemic locally,” Dr. Mangiacarne said.
Spero also operates a clinic on the northeast side of Indianapolis.
