Mid-Hudson Addiction Recovery Centers (MARC) (Aired on April 14 and 15, 2018)
Andrew O’Grady, CEO of the Mid-Hudson Recovery Centers (MARC) and Executive Director of Mental Health America of Dutchess County (MHA) visits RadioRotary to tell about changes at MARC as it finds new ways to improve its mission of residential treatment for alcoholics and other addicts. MARC is now allied with MHA, extending the reach of both organizations. If a person in Dutchess or surrounding counties is sufferance from an addiction or mental crisis, he or she can get immediate help at the Stabilization Center at 230 North Road in Poughkeepsie, which is always open day or night and which will provide therapy up to 23 hours while helping the visitor decide what the appropriate next steps, such a detox or other treatment, are for the specific circumstances. MARC manages nine beds in the Stabilization Center that focus on addiction and alcoholism problems. A person ready to be helped can also call MARC’s Chemical Dependency Crisis Center at (845) 471-0310.
