Peabody, Mass. — PHC, Inc., d/b/a Pioneer Behavioral Health, a provider of inpatient and outpatient behavioral health services and substance abuse treatment facilities, has announced the addition of Renaissance Recovery, a 24-bed residential program, located in Detroit, effective in February.

Renaissance Recovery is designed to provide behavioral treatment to chemically impaired adolescents, ages 12-17. This facility will join Pioneer's other Michigan-based inpatient and outpatient facilities that include Harbor Oaks Hospital and Recovery Center, Detroit Capstone Academy, Pioneer Counseling Centers and Michigan Wellplace. Pioneer also provides services at substance abuse treatment facilities in Utah and Virginia, and inpatient and outpatient psychiatric facilities in Pennsylvania, and Nevada.

"This is Pioneer's first freestanding adolescent program and we are pleased to be able to address the needs of this population with specific, focused in-patient services," said Bruce A. Shear, Pioneer's president and CEO. "We anticipate marketing this program nationally to clients who will be attracted to the facility due to its unique program offerings." Shear added that Detroit represents a key growth market and the company will continue to expand its presence and provide additional services. "Renaissance Recovery presents a unique opportunity to Pioneer and is expected to add an additional $3 million to $5 million in annualized revenue," he said. Renaissance Recovery incorporates a co-occurring based assessment model to identify and treat both mental health and substance abuse disorders. Utilizing a multi-disciplinary team and eclectic therapy approach, which includes cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing and 12-Step facilitation, the program combines substance abuse therapy, educational services, medication therapy and social interventions to address the needs of the adolescent residents and focus on individual strengths to assist them with remaining substance free as well as enhancing their self esteem and self worth.
