CRC HEALTH BOCA CENTER FIRES ON ALL CYLINDERS

02/18/2012   -ATIN-  Following the introduction of new management, a pioneer in the development of the Florida Model of addictions care, as well as dual diagnosis, is now firing on all cylinders after a period of lackluster census. Boca Raton's Wellness Resource Center, which was bought by CRC Health Group from the center's founding partners for $3.6 million in 2006, was operating at just 65 percent capacity when the Cupertino, CA-based treatment behemoth, the nation's largest addictions center operator, brought in Paul Reed to turn things around. Reed, who began his career at Miami Children's Hospital and over the past fifteen years progressed from program director to executive director at facilities in Florida and Georgia, has succeeded probably beyond even CRC's expectations, last year taking Wellness to 100 percent census and emerging as a model for CRC's more than 150 facilities across the nation. Reed credits the increased census to a growing demand and, just as importantly, a renewed program.  Getting back to the basics of treatment, Reed started by strengthening Wellness' clinical program, adding services such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), intensive trauma group therapy, and specialists in relapse prevention, health and wellness, and eating disorders.  He also incorporated alumni into the treatment programming with weekly presentations to help engage current and former patients.  Aesthetic improvements to the facility followed.
