Indianapolis-based Landmark Recovery has opened its Medicaid treatment facility, Praxis of South Bend by Landmark Recovery. Landmark says the 160-bed treatment facility in Mishawaka is the largest single addiction treatment center accepting Medicaid in the state.
The new facility also created 120 new full- and part-time jobs, along with increasing accessibility to addiction treatment.
“Currently, only 5% of recovery beds available in our entire country accept Medicaid,” said Michelle Dubey, chief clinical officer for Landmark Recovery. “In a recent survey 6% of adults in Indiana reported an alcohol use disorder while 3.5% reported a drug use disorder. This treatment center has the ability to help more than 1,900 people a year find recovery from an addiction.”
Praxis of South Bend provides medical detox, residential treatment, and outpatient services to those suffering from substance use disorders. Landmark says the facility also treats patients with a dual diagnosis, such as mental health issues and substance use addictions.
Praxis of South Bend also offers personalized programs, individual therapy sessions and counseling to address the root causes of addiction.
The Mishawaka facility comes nearly two years after Landmark opened its inpatient drug and alcohol recovery treatment center in Indianapolis.
