U.S. REP. BABIN’S CHIEF OF STAFF RECEIVES TOUR OF CENIKOR’S ROBUST ADDICTION TREATMENT PROGRAM

 

(Houston, TX- January 30, 2017) Cenikor Foundation (Cenikor) was honored to host U.S. Representative Brian Babin’s (TX-36) Chief of Staff Stuart Burns and Regional Director of Community Relations Beverly Ferguson, M.Ed. on a tour of its Houston/Deer Park treatment facility. Burns and Ferguson were invited to see both the long- and short-term/detox wings and had the opportunity to see how Cenikor’s services can positively impact their constituents in need. Cenikor is aligned with Rep. Babin’s, Burns and Ferguson’s focus on personal accountability and community impact through economic development. Cenikor’s programs provide professional, responsible, and quality driven treatment options that help individuals get back to healthy, stable and productive lives.

 

In addition to personal damage to individuals and their loved ones, substance abuse drains the economy. The United States spends billions of dollars on lost productivity, healthcare expenses, law enforcement and criminal justice costs. Research shows that every dollar spent on addiction treatment saves the taxpayers an average of seven ($7) dollars. Cenikor is dedicated to meeting the demand with accredited programming, credentialed infrastructure, and clinical staff to support the population in need in Houston and the surrounding areas. Burns inquired about the career services and workforce development programs, and commended Cenikor’s goal of helping people leave treatment with not just sobriety but with quality employment, a stable living environment, reliable transportation and network of support.

 

“It is in our mission to prepare and assist our clients with developing both soft and hard skills necessary to become responsible citizens free of addiction,” says Eugene Hall, Facility Director of Houston’s long-term treatment center for Cenikor. “People leave our doors and have the chance to rebuild their lives, reconnect with their families, and redirect their futures.”

 

“We sincerely thank Chief of Staff Burns and Director Ferguson for taking the time to see and experience what quality substance use disorder treatment care can do to support people in need and positively impact the local community. Every visitor to our facility affords us an opportunity to challenge the stigma of addiction and to illustrate that help exists to support people on their personal path to long-term recovery,’ says Jerry Hall, Senior Vice President of Cenikor Foundation. Cenikor’s long-term program has been active in the Houston/Deer Park area since 1994 but recently expanded its short-stay and detox program to meet the ever-growing need for local substance abuse treatment services.

 

Cenikor is a 50l(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to helping people with substance abuse, substance use disorders and behavioral health issues through a full continuum of care. Cenikor proudly serves over 1,000 clients per week, offering prevention, short-term inpatient, long-term inpatient, ambulatory detox, inpatient detox, adult outpatient, adolescent inpatient, adolescent outpatient, and sober living programs throughout Texas and Louisiana. Cenikor Foundation is one of the oldest and most successful substance abuse treatment centers in the nation. Cenikor, now celebrating its 50th year of service, offers a continuum of care in Texas and Louisiana, dedicated to assisting people develop the skills needed to become responsible citizens free of substance abuse.

CENIKOR’S HOUSTON TREATMENT PROGRAM EXPANDS TO MEET THE NEEDS OF THE COMMUNITY

 

(Houston, TX- January 18, 2017)  Cenikor Foundation (Cenikor) has expanded the capacity of its Houston (Deer Park) short-stay and detox program to meet the ever-growing demand for local substance abuse treatment services. Unfortunately, there is a significant treatment gap in the United States. According to National Institute on Drug Abuse, in 2013 an estimated 22.7 million Americans needed treatment for drug or alcohol addiction, but only about 2.5 million people (less than 10%) received treatment. Cenikor is dedicated to meeting the need with accredited programming, credentialed infrastructure, and clinical staff to support the population in need in Houston and the surrounding areas. This renovation grows the Houston facility from a 30-bed program to 64 beds for detox and short-stay services. Cenikor Houston offers multi-faceted programming that combines clinical care with personal and professional development, along with recreation and healthy leisure activities in the gym and fitness area, volley ball court, and swimming pool. Cenikor projects the increased bed capacity will allow service for an additional 650 – 800 individuals per year.

 

“With remodeling and building expansion, our Houston program is now able to serve more men and women desiring to stop using substances and to start a new life. We embrace the philosophy that treatment should include learning how to maintain sobriety while recovering from major life losses such as housing, employment, education, parenting and family relationships. When healing moves into every aspect of a person’s life, the reality of staying sober becomes real,” says Amy Hansen, Program Director of Houston’s short-stay and detox treatment center for Cenikor.

 

“The behavioral health industry is constantly evolving and sadly the substance use rates are continuously escalating,” says Dr. David Lee, Vice President of Cenikor Foundation. “We are dedicated to eliminating the barriers to treatment, be they financial, spatial, locational, or informational, to meet the needs of the next generation seeking a safe, supportive environment for treatment.” In many cases, private insurance providers include benefits for substance abuse treatment. The short-stay and detox program accepts most insurance, Medicaid, and self-pay. The treatment facility is able to serve a large population including those with co-occurring use disorders, and offers specialized female care. Cenikor offers State Funding for those clients who qualify.
