Family and friends supporting a person in recovery also need support. We have added a four-week family support group session on Tuesdays from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. at our Des Moines location at 4908 Franklin Avenue. This is a four-week rolling program, but new participants can start at any time. There is no charge for this family group session, but we will ask you to sign in and participants may provide a free will donation. For more information, contact us at 515-280-3860 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
UCS Healthcare is expanding. In addition to our recent clinic relocation and expansion in Ankeny, in the coming months, we'll be partnering with other substance use and mental health treatment providers in Iowa to add medication units. This means that medication assisted treatment will be available to more patients who are seeking long-term recovery from addiction.
