PRINCETON JUNCTION, N.J., Oct. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Summit Behavioral Health, a leader in drug and alcohol detox and intensive outpatient addiction treatment in the Northeastern U.S., is proud to announce the opening of their brand new, state-of-the-art substance abuse and detoxification treatment center, Serenity at Summit New England. The celebration of the new center located in Haverhill, Massachusetts will begin with an open house on October 23rd, with supporters and guest speakers, Haverhill Mayor James J. Fiorentini and Senator Kathleen O'Connor Ives, who will be discussing the great work behind Summit, as well as beloved NHL Boston Bruin Dave "Silky" Silk who has always been involved in the Boston community and is a huge supporter in addiction recovery.
Summit's move to open an additional location comes on the heels of the recent reports that show as substance abuse increases to epidemic levels in the U.S., additional rehabilitation centers are needed to handle and support the increasing number of patients. The treatment center will offer a 23-bed detoxification and 20-bed residential programs, along with clinical and holistic care in a private and comfortable environment for all patients. Summit also offers ID Genetic Testing that allows for highly individualized treatment and offers both the client and practitioner valuable information that can positively impact their road to recovery.
"We are proud to be able to offer our renowned rehabilitation services and treatment programs in the New England facility," says CEO Jim Kane. "Given the current need for treatment of substance abuse and mental health issues, we believe that our unique approach to healing will truly help patients get the help they need."
Support for this opening is abundant, given the backing from key politicians Fiorentini and Ives. Senator Ives will specifically be speaking to the attendees of the open house about the need for Serenity at Summit New England as well as her belief that this move will prove beneficial and do good for the surrounding community.
In addition to guest speakers Silk, Ives and Fiorentini, Summit Behavioral Health's open house at the New England location will also offer a catered lunch, as well as holistic treatments such as aroma therapy and massages. Clinicians and staff members will be on hand to offer tours and to answer questions.
The open house will take place from 10AM-2PM and is located at 61 Brown Street, Haverhill, MA.
