Woodlands Recovery Centers (WRC) started a new substance treatment center to people needing help for their addiction treatment needs.
Kim Arrington, the founder and clinical director of WRC,stated that everything went smoothly when they were preparing to open the addiction treatment center.
"We actually got our state license 45 days earlier than expected because there are no treatment facilities in this area," she said. "We got our joint commission accreditation for the same reason."
The WRC provides assessment, solo or family therapy, and also provide a continuation of care by following up with case management assistance for patients.
"We have 21 clients at the moment," Arrington said. "Outpatient is all that's open at the moment."
While the WRC only offers intensive outpatient addiction treatment programs, which range from 30 to 90 days, there are plans to have 36 beds for residential drug rehabilitation stays in the future.
Arrington indicated that their drug addiction treatment center has been asked to lead the way in assisting Beaumont residents with any addiction treatment needs they have.
"We've had two indigent programs in this area and they have been coming to us and asking to do all sorts of things," she added. "There's just been a huge lack of treatment services in this area."
