Braking Point Recover Center is wrapping up construction of its second location in Whitehall, Ohio, about 10 miles outside of Columbus. Staff is already hearing interest from local residents and expects to be busy when the doors open January 3, says its clinical director, Rachel Weaver.
“We’ve had a few inquiries on the process and procedure for getting treatment at the facility,” Weaver says. “There have already been some organizations in the area who don’t provide the types of services we do and will be looking to send us referrals. There is a big need to say the very least.”
The treatment center will offer two types of service: Detox with Supplemental Living and Intensive Transitional Day Treatment. The center has 16 beds for the seven-day detox program – 10 for men and six for women, with genders separated on different floors. The difference between Braking Point and other treatment facilities is that clients don’t have to be ordered by court to enter, says the center’s director of operations, Lisa Pertee.
