Nashville, Tenn. – July 24, 2018 – – JourneyPure, a leading provider of addiction treatment services for patients from across the nation, today announced a significant expansion of its treatment network with the addition of 10 outpatient centers during 2018 in the states of Tennessee, Kentucky and Florida. Through a combination of inpatient facilities, outpatient centers, and proprietary coaching services and technologies, JourneyPure delivers a full continuum of integrated, high-quality services to assist each patient in becoming and staying healthy.
“JourneyPure specializes in treating individuals suffering from co-occurring mental illness and substance abuse disorders and recognizes that most people can be treated effectively and efficiently on an outpatient basis,” stated JourneyPure CEO and co-founder Kevin Lee. “The addition of these 10 outpatient addiction treatment centers reinforces our commitment to the long-term recovery of our patients by providing a full continuum of services to support their needs.”
“The JourneyPure outpatient centers make treatment accessible for individuals with career and family obligations that prevent them from an inpatient stay. The outpatient centers also provide a smooth transition and continuity of care for patients initially treated in our inpatient facilities,” said Lee. “Regardless of treatment facility type, all JourneyPure patients benefit from our industry-leading JourneyPure Coaching™ program and app, proprietary tools to prevent relapse and promote recovery.”
The 10 new outpatient centers include five locations in the state of Tennessee: two JourneyPure Nashville centers, two JourneyPure Knoxville centers, JourneyPure Clarksville and JourneyPure Franklin. The new Kentucky centers are JourneyPure Louisville and JourneyPure Lexington, while JourneyPure Fort Walton Beach and JourneyPure Orlando are in Florida. With these centers being opened during 2018, JourneyPure operates a total of 19 outpatient centers.
“JourneyPure’s services are needed now more than ever as opioid abuse has reached epidemic proportions,” stated Dr. Sam MacMaster, addiction industry pioneer and JourneyPure co-founder, executive vice president, and chief clinical officer. “Our team of experienced clinicians and addiction specialists has developed truly innovative programs to identify the underlying issues driving addiction and support lasting recovery.”
Recent reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show that from 1999 to 2016 more than 630,000 people died from drug overdoses.
