March 20, 2020 – “Providers may use flex beds to remove barriers to treatment and assist facilities in their efforts to effectively utilize resources to meet the needs of individuals entering residential treatment,” said DDAP Secretary Jennifer Smith.

Using this flex bed approach allows a facility already licensed to provide both residential detoxification and residential rehabilitation at the same location to utilize empty beds in one activity to conduct services provided in the other activity. For personnel purposes, facilities approved for flex bed may also utilize counselors as primary care staff within their detox unit when utilizing additional detox beds.
