St. Francis to Close Its Recovery Center for Addiction Treatment

Saint Francis Health Center will close its outpatient addiction treatment services program on June 1st.

The Recovery Center at Saint Francis, 4646 NW Fielding Rd., has provided counseling services for people with chemical dependency and gambling problems for 24 years.

Staff members met last Spring and implemented several program changes over the past year aimed at ensuring the program's future. However, Saint Francis says with fewer resources available, they made the decision to close the center in order to focus efforts on growing needs for acute care and charity care.

Patients will continue to be seen through May 31st. The closure will affect five employees.
