Recovery Centers of America Add Mental Health Outpatient Services
NEC member Recovery Centers of America (RCA) has begun offering outpatient mental health services for both those with substance use disorders and those without a history of substance use.
While RCA has always treated mental health disorders that coincide with substance use disorders, the standalone option to seek mental health treatment that does not coincide with a substance use disorder is a new offering. The new program comes as mental health services across the country are in high demand as the COVID-19 public health crisis has caused emotional distress for many Americans. RCA will now provide treatment for eating disorders, depression, anxiety, and more.
“This is an unprecedented time for all Americans. But for many individuals suffering from depression, eating disorders, anxiety, and other mental illnesses, the social distancing requirements of the pandemic and resulting isolation has been catastrophic. Because we have clinicians available at RCA to treat these disorders, we decided to expand our services to also provide mental health care for those who don’t have a primary SUD as well as those that do,” explained Christina Snyder, Clinical Director of Outpatient Services at Recovery Centers of America.
The Council commends RCA for its work to increase access to mental health services during this unprecedented and challenging time. Read more in PR Newswire.
