Danvers Rehab Center Aims to Boost Care with New Professionals
A drug rehab and addiction treatment facility in Danvers, Massachusetts hired new professionals to improve services.
The addiction treatment facility, Recovery Centers of America hired two new team members — Christine Turner and Theresa Donovan — on May 4.
Donovan has 10 years of healthcare and legal expertise and is the new quality manager of the center. Turner has been working in the human and health services industry for more than two decades and as the new clinical director of the center, she's responsible for managing the facility's clinical programming and treatment services.
"I have seen a lot of things that work and a lot of things that don't work," she said. "I think that one underlying piece that does work throughout my whole career is to be delivering competent and compassionate care to treat people with dignity. I think that has always worked and always will work and I think this organization goes over and above to do that."
"We recognize that addiction is a brain disease but also treat it as a medical component," said the CEO of Recovery Centers of America at Danvers Laura Ames. "We're looking at the holistic patient. We get patients who come in with heart diseases, blood pressure issues or respiratory issues and we look at all conditions, the whole patient. Everything from where they live and their families to the medical, emotional and physical components."
