SAN ANGELO, TX – The Alcohol & Drug Abuse Council for the Concho Valley (ADACCV) is excited to announce a special Foundation Blessing to be performed by Bishop Emeritus of the Catholic Diocese of San Angelo, Rev. Michael D. Pfeifer, OMI. This blessing will mark the pouring of the concrete foundation for the new facility. Join us as we celebrate this long awaited milestone! This special event is scheduled for Wednesday, June 20 at 1:00 at the new facility location, named The Journey Recovery Center, at the 3600 block of US 277 North, near the Roy K. Robb Facility, in northern San Angelo. This event is open to invited guests and the media.

The expansion will allow ADACCV to add residential detoxification services that will accommodate up to 12 clients. It will also allow ADACCV to consolidate its residential treatment services to one location and double its residential treatment capacity by providing 30 male treatment beds and 18 female treatment beds. The women’s program is one of few in the State of Texas to allow women to bring their children with them while they receive services.  

A comprehensive drug treatment program is comprised of three stages: 1. Detox, 2. Rehab and 3. Aftercare. Detox helps stabilize clients and allows them to safely and comfortably remove the toxins from their body. According to the Treatment Research Institute at the University of Pennsylvania, when detox services are available immediately for those in need, clients will be better engaged in rehabilitation and in the long run will be more successful in maintaining their recovery. Without detox, they are at higher risk of continuing in their addiction and will remain a burden on the local healthcare system, legal system and other community resources.

ADACCV is a 501c3 nonprofit and its mission is to save lives and create healthier communities.
