St. Elizabeth Physicians Journey Recovery Center opens
CRESTVIEW HILLS, Ky. (WKRC) - A local recovery center is the latest in supporting those who are trying to take the next step in addiction recovery.
The St. Elizabeth Physicians “Journey” Recovery Center uses a 12-step program and other proven methods of success based on the Betty Ford Foundation.
The center is near the Edgewood hospital campus in Crestview Hills.
It will offer team treatment for those in recovery for alcohol, prescription painkillers, heroin, and other narcotics.
The staff will initially start with about a dozen physicians, nurses, therapists and case managers.
They expect to expand that staff to more than double that within the next year.
This is an expansion of the services already offered by St. Elizabeth Healthcare.
They already work closely to provide addiction services with several other agencies that refer patients including the Kentucky Department of Drug Control Policy, Kentucky Medicaid, the Brighton Center and Transitions.
