PHOENIX, Oct. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Addiction destroys countless lives. A Better Today Recovery Services is a treatment center in Phoenix, AZ, that's on a mission to do something about it.

ABTRS is inviting the community and local addiction professionals to join that mission and attend an open house to discuss addiction and its impact. The event will be held on Tuesday, November 12th, 2019 from 5:00 pm8:00 pm.

The open house will feature a presentation by the Phoenix Police Department. The PD will be sharing on the realities of addiction related issues in the community and how it is evolving on the streets of Phoenix.

An addiction interventionist who has over a decade of experience will share knowledge on the addiction intervention process. Jorn LeBlanc, Chief of Operations, at ABTRS said in a statement, "We feel a social responsibility to be a guiding light for our community on this issue. If you have been impacted by addiction or are a local addiction professional, this open house is for you."

ABTRS will also be introducing their new Medical Director, Nikki Rippeteau. An M.D. who recently joined ABTRS' mission of saving lives and healing families. Dr. Rippeteau has been practicing medicine for over 30 years and ABTRS is excited to have her join the team.

The event will also introduce several ABTRS support staff, many of whom have overcome addiction and have found meaning and purpose in supporting patients through the treatment process.

For over 10 years, ABTRS has offered substance abuse treatment to those who find themselves in the grips of addiction. Their treatment center is unique in that they offer a full continuum of care with various differing levels of detox, inpatient, and outpatient services. Earlier this year ABTRS unveiled the Recovery (R)Evolution, Independent Living program where patients can stay for up to a year after they graduate from treatment.

ABTRS strives to be an organization that communities and families can turn to for help and where those suffering from addiction can find healing. This community event is open to all and tickets are free, but there is a limited amount available.

For those interested in attending this event, please RSVP at the Eventbrite. Light snacks and refreshments will be served.
