Recovery Centers of America (RCA) is tackling Indiana’s growing opioid and alcohol addiction problem head-on with this week’s opening of a new comprehensive 112-bed treatment center in Indianapolis. RCA has one mission: Help 1 million patients achieve a life of recovery by providing evidence-based alcohol and drug addiction treatment throughout the United States. RCA believes patients who are treated well get well sooner and stay well together, which is why every patient is treated with dignity, discretion, and respect. The new treatment facility also brings nearly 200 jobs to the community.
Stephanie L. Anderson, LCSW, the new CEO of Recovery Centers of America at Indianapolis, commented on the crucial need for this level of addiction care. “There is a desperate need for addiction treatment as Indiana’s substance use disorder problem, combined with the increased stress caused by the pandemic, continues to climb to critical levels.” In 2018 over 1,100 residents died of overdose from opioid abuse. From 2000 through 2018 over 8,700 Hoosiers died from alcohol-induced causes. Prior to joining the RCA team, Anderson worked in several leadership positions with healthcare organizations in addition to her diverse work with the State of Indiana. While working for the state, Anderson served residents through the Indiana Department of Correction and the Family and Social Services Administration.
