The County of Summit Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health (ADM) Services Board will fund 20 additional residential treatment beds for males with opiate / heroin addiction at IBH Addiction Recovery Center beginning October 1st.
The ADM Board of Directors recently approved an additional 3.2 million dollars to be dedicated to addressing the ongoing opiate / heroin epidemic. This increase in residential treatment capacity is the first of several related system enhancements being planned.
“The ADM Board, along with their community partners, are dedicated to eliminating this epidemic by providing critical treatment and recovery supports to those in need. These additional treatment beds will improve our ability to provide treatment in a timelier manner” says Jerry Craig, ADM Board Executive Director, “We are pleased to partner with IBH Addiction Recovery Center as they begin to expand further into Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT), an evidence-based practice which combines behavioral therapy and medications to effectively treat substance use disorders.
Deborah Foster-Koch, Executive Director of IBH Addiction Recovery Center adds, “It is a privilege to be chosen for the addition of 20 beds in Summit County’s continuum of care. We recognize and appreciate the trust the community has placed in us, and this expansion will allow IBH to serve even more people.”
