Nashville, Tenn. – Sept. 19, 2017 – – 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 eight outpatient centers in 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’s eight new outpatient addiction treatment centers reinforce our commitment to the long-term recovery of our patients by providing a full continuum of services to support their needs,” stated JourneyPure CEO and co-founder Kevin Lee. “Most patients can be effectively and efficiently treated on an outpatient basis and do not require the controlled environment of a residential facility.”
“JourneyPure has designed flexible outpatient programs to make treatment accessible to those who have career and family obligations that prevent them from an inpatient stay,” said Lee. “Individuals participating in outpatient treatment also benefit from the use of our industry-leading JourneyPure Coaching™ app, which helps prevent relapse and promotes long-term recovery from addiction.”
The new outpatient addiction treatment centers are located in proximity to existing JourneyPure inpatient facilities to provide a smooth transition and continuity of care. JourneyPure’s team of clinicians and addiction specialists has developed innovative programs to meet the specialized needs of patients, many of whom suffer from co-occurring mental illness and substance abuse disorders.
The Tennessee outpatient centers being added are JourneyPure Nashville, JourneyPure Columbia, JourneyPure Murfreesboro, JourneyPure Tullahoma, and JourneyPure Knoxville. The new Kentucky centers are JourneyPure Louisville and JourneyPure Paducah, while JourneyPure Orlando is being added in Florida. The Nashville, Knoxville, Louisville, Paducah and Orlando clinics are opening in October and November, while the other clinics are operational.
“Patients who have completed detoxification and a residential or inpatient program can benefit from the services of these new centers. Outpatient programs can help these individuals maintain progress so that the threat of relapse is significantly reduced,” stated Dr. Sam MacMaster, addiction industry pioneer and co-founder, executive vice president, and chief clinical officer of JourneyPure.
“JourneyPure truly helps patients receive the drug and alcohol addiction treatment they need and deserve. We do so by providing evidence-based treatments along with dual diagnosis to address co-occurring mental health issues and root out the underlying triggers causing the patient to abuse substances,” said Dr. MacMaster. “In today’s world, JourneyPure’s services are needed more than ever. The alarming increase in opioid use as well as trends in prescription drug abuse are key factors that have fueled JourneyPure’s growth.”
Recent CDC reports show that from 2000 to 2015 more than half a million people died from drug overdoses. Since 1999, the number of opioid overdose deaths has quadrupled, and 91 Americans now die every day from an opioid overdose. It has been estimated that more than 15 million individuals in the U.S. are currently abusing prescription drugs.
JourneyPure has been rapidly expanding its footprint in regional markets and currently serves patients from across the nation through six inpatient facilities in Tennessee, Kentucky and Florida, as well as numerous sober living homes and outpatient clinics. JourneyPure’s growing base of inpatient facilities includes JourneyPure At The River and JourneyPure Voyage in Murfreesboro, Tennessee; JourneyPure Serenity Network in Knoxville, Tennessee; JourneyPure Bowling Green in Bowling Green, Kentucky; JourneyPure Emerald Coast in Panama City Beach, Florida; and JourneyPure 12 Keys Rehab in Jensen Beach, Florida.
JourneyPure has a robust pipeline of opportunities to partner with owners of existing addiction treatment centers as well to develop de-novo facilities. The experienced JourneyPure team offers industry-leading operational tools and proprietary technologies as well as access to expansion capital.
