According to WYMT Mountain News, Kentucky officials celebrated the opening of Addiction Recovery Care’s largest treatment facility, called Riverplace Center (Riverplace) on August 13. Riverplace is a 132-bed facility for men. The facility is connected to Addiction Recovery Care, which is a connection of 34 addiction treatment centers in 13 counties across Eastern and Central Kentucky.
The residential center will provide individuals with a structured program to help them on their roads to recovery, involving private counseling, a recreational facility and bedroom facilities. Riverplace is currently accepting resident applications, and is anticipated to reach capacity with 32 residents by September 1. The center will increase its capacity to 120 beds by January of 2021. When the facility reaches capacity, Riverplace will employ between 40-50 employees, including counselors, peer support specialists, nurses, nurse practitioners, and residential staff.
A potential second, future phase of Riverplace may include a food bank for recovering individuals, classrooms, and additional work stations for recovering individuals who wish to complete their GED. It will also include additional counseling offices, child therapy counseling, and transitional housing, including four two-bedroom apartments.
Addiction Recovery Care (ARC) provides addiction treatment services in Kentucky, with emphasis on Christian spiritual enrichment and development. ARC’s goal is to productive lives through a recovery program that establishes emotional health, physical wellness, and spiritual growth.
