A new opioid treatment center is complete in Martinsville after Wednesday’s ribbon cutting ceremony.

Administrators say it should be ready to accept patients in late October, pending approval from regulators.

Pinnacle CEO Joe Pritchard says this center is the final phase for the Recover Works campus that opened earlier this year. The campus provides all levels of care for patients in need of assistance in recovering from substance abuse, including psychiatric stabilization, detox, residential treatment, partial hospitalization programming, and a variety of outpatient programs.

Pritchard says it’s just the beginning to getting more treatment options available to Hoosiers. “The goal is to take what we're doing here and figure out where else in the state we could duplicate this campus,” he said. “And there are discussions around how we can do that.”

The center is expected to treat at least 500 individuals on a regular basis.

Rick Miller, executive director of Stability First, says the center is going to make a noticeable impact for those in need. “You're not gonna solve it all. But you can sure put a dent in it, and you can change the trajectory of individual lives and families and that changes the community and that's what we're really excited about,” he said.

Pinnacle also plans to build a 32-bed detox unit at IU Health Morgan, just down the road from Recovery Works.

Individuals can call 765-516-6292 for a free confidential assessment and be added to an intake list.
