Marshfield Alcohol and Drug Recovery Center opens in former PDC building
For the City Times
MARSHFIELD – Family Health Center of Marshfield, a member of Marshfield Clinic Health System, recently opened the Marshfield Alcohol and Drug Recovery Center at the former home of the Personal Development Center (PDC) at 214 W. Second St., Marshfield.
Sheila Weix, Family Health Center director of substance abuse services, said the new center reinforces Marshfield Clinic Health System’s commitment to helping people battling alcohol and other substance use disorders by providing onsite counseling services and medication assisted treatment for adults.
“Meeting the health care needs of the community, including helping those with addiction, is our No. 1 priority,” Weix said. “Our new center will provide valuable outpatient services in a calm, welcoming and confidential environment. The care is delivered by experienced addiction counselors, as well as nurses, physicians and support staff with specialized training in the treatment of addiction.”
The center will offer care coordination and contact with the Recovery Community as part of treatment, as well as other local community resources. It also offers special services for pregnant women. People can access treatment through self-referral, referral by a primary care provider, follow-up after a hospitalization, or can just walk in. The center works with low-income patients and commercial insurance.
“The only thing required to access help is a desire to not use today,” Weix said.
Treatment for adolescents will be added as staffing levels increase in the coming months.
