Innovative New Community Recovery Center in Naples
CENTER CITY, Minn., Aug. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Hazelden, one of the world's largest and most respected private, nonprofit alcohol and drug addiction treatment centers, announced today that it will open a new treatment facility in Naples, Florida.
"We are thrilled to bring back to Florida Hazelden's ongoing commitment to help more people find and sustain lifelong recovery from substance abuse," said Mark Mishek, Hazelden president and CEO. "We are tremendously grateful for the warm reception we already are receiving in Naples."
The new facility will open in March 2010 and will feature an innovative recovery community approach coordinating recovery principles in life and work. It will serve those needing intermediate level addiction treatment services with a lifestyle approach to recovery and programming for up to 18 months post treatment. The new center will also involve affiliations with Naples area medical, recovery and business organizations to help reduce treatment costs and provide a continuous support system at home, work and in the community. Hazelden and Naples Community Hospital have already reached an affiliation agreement to support drug and alcohol treatment in the community.
"We are deeply committed to the Naples and west coast region and will provide alumni and family programs, screenings and brief interventions, education presentations and other services that will be determined in collaboration with the community," said Mishek.
Hazelden will be located in a newly constructed building near the Naples Community Hospital main campus and will initially provide treatment programs for adults with a total capacity of 48 residential beds and a full array of family and outpatient services.
