TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — People struggling with mental health or addiction will soon have access to a new resource in Terre Haute.
Indiana Center for Recoveries Access to Community Care Center will open on March 1. The center will work with organizations around the state to help people find appropriate care and treatment.
Hayley Dorsett, the Director of Outpatient Services and Access to Community Care, said the goal is to create a safe space for anyone who enters their doors.
“Having those resources if and when they make the decision to do something with their life that maybe they’re not so thrilled about, helping them come back and realize that there is always an opportunity to do what you want with your life,” explained Dorsett.
In addition to helping people find treatment, the center will offer in-house services like educational groups. Dorsett also mentioned that those groups would be for both mental health and addiction treatment.
The center will also have free naloxone and fentanyl testing strips that people are welcome to pick up. The center will have testing strips available in the lobby with the goal of 24/7 accessibility.
Once the center opens on March 1, the hours will be 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. People will be able to call to schedule an appointment or they can walk in for an on-site assessment.
