PITTSBURGH, Nov. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Paul Bacharach, President and CEO of Gateway Rehabilitation Center and its Ohio subsidiary the Neil Kennedy Recovery Clinic (NKRC), today announced the transition of leadership in the Ohio organization.
"It has been a privilege to work with Jerry Carter. He's long overseen all activities of NKRC's four locations throughout Ohio. His dedication to serving those on paths to recovery from substance-use disorders is unparalleled. As he proceeds into his well-deserved retirement after 38 years with NKRC, we are grateful to Jerry for both his professionalism and dedication," Mr. Bacharach said.
"Jerry didn't feel comfortable retiring, however, until he knew NKRC would have experienced guidance going forward, so after an extensive search, we asked Carolyn Givens of Columbus, a longtime professional in the field of mental health and alcohol and drug addiction services and current executive director of the Ohio Suicide Prevention Foundation (OSPF), to continue NKRC's leadership," Mr. Bacharach continued, noting that the transition would begin in December.
Established in 1946, the Neil Kennedy Recovery Clinic offers a wide range of alcohol and/or other drug evidence-based treatment options for adults and teens. All treatment services are accredited by The Joint Commission and certified by Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services.
