“We are doing everything we can to protect the physical health and safety of our patients and staff,” said David Hillis, Jr., vice president of outpatient services.

“Telehealth services are the safest way for our patients to stay connected to treatment and recovery,” said Jane Jolly, director of outpatient operations. “Bringing telehealth services to our patients -- many of whom also struggle with anxiety, stress and isolation -- helps break down the latest barrier to treatment erected by the pandemic.”

AdCare’s parent company, American Addiction Centers, is also offering free virtual support meetings for the public for those who need encouragement and a supportive community.
