TERRE HAUTE -- Hamilton Center, Inc. has announced the closing of its addictions residential treatment facility, which had been in operation since 2005.
The seven bed residential facility provides recovery services for males 18 and older.
In the 2009 fiscal year, the addictions residential facility served 117 clients, while Vigo County Addiction Services, which will continue to provide intensive outpatient services, served 1292 clients.
"Unfortunately our addictions residential facility operates at a $400,000 deficit, so we had to make a tough decision to maintain services through our much larger outpatient programs than residential," Hamilton Center CEO Galen Goode said. "It is a very difficult decision because the residential program shows great clinical outcomes. We will continue working with other community agencies to find access to residential facilities for those suffering from addictions."
July 23 will mark the last day of the 28-day program in order to ensure treatment completion for those currently enrolled.
"We will continue to work with those clients on an outpatient basis as necessary," Executive Director of Client Support Services Dr. Cynthia Sartor said. "Our dedicated staff at the addictions residential facility are passionate about what they do. As they have throughout the program, they will ensure that those who remain will have the appropriate community supports in place upon completion."
Hamilton Center, Inc. is a regional behavioral health system in central and west central Indiana. The organization offers a broad array of services during one's entire life cycle -- birth through older adulthood.
Offices are located in Clay, Greene, Hendricks, Marion, Owen, Parke, Putnam, Sullivan, Vermillion and Vigo counties.
