Via PR Newswire. RCA at Lighthouse, which has Treated Over 3,000 Patients, Invested Over $75 Million In The South Jersey Community & Created Over 240 Jobs, Invites The Community To Join In RCA’s Mission To Save One Million Lives from the Disease of Addiction.

MAYS LANDING, N.J., Sept. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Recovery Centers of America (RCA), invites the South Jersey community to join in solidarity with community members in recovery and tour the world-class center for addiction treatment serving an area hardest hit by the addiction epidemic during an open house on Thursday, September 27 from 1-4 p.m. located at 5034 Atlantic Avenue, Mays Landing, NJ 08330.

The event will kick off with tours of the 16-acre, 65,000 square foot facility for families and local dignitaries. The tour will highlight the additional space including inpatient beds as well as meeting space for recovery support groups such as AA, NA, Al-Anon and NAR-Anon outside of RCA who are welcome to meet at the facility seven days a week.

Also included will be a Narcan training session, educating attendees on how to easily administer the life-saving overdose reversal drug as an effort to further equip the community with the tools they need to fight the addiction epidemic.

Founder and CEO of Recovery Centers of America Brian O’Neill will be speaking on the mission to save one million lives from addiction through a combination of developing a standard for quality care and eliminating high-costs of treatment through in-network partnerships with major insurance companies.

Lighthouse CEO David Dorschu will be speaking about the facility’s expansion. On October 1, Lighthouse will officially open 80 new beds, growing the center from 53 to 133 beds, and will hire 62 employees by the end of the year to support RCA’s 24/7 admission philosophy.

“With the additional space, we will be able to save more lives, but it also permits us to be more targeted in how we’re addressing the needs of different groups by allowing us the capacity to design and implement additional programs and tracks,” says Dorschu.

Lighthouse’s inpatient Clinical Director and Director of outpatient Dawn Belamarich Berry will be speaking about the additional programs added as a result of the expansion to further individualize treatment included in the center’s comprehensive continuum of care. Berry has treatment experience working with diverse groups from adults in a state prison environment to youth in intensive outpatient to trauma-specific cases.
