From DayMark’s web site:
Daymark® Recovery Services, Inc. is a mission driven, comprehensive community provider of culturally sensitive mental health and substance abuse services… committed to using the most current best practices and effective, research-based treatment programs to assist all citizens working toward achieving optimum health and recovery.
DayMark plans to retain at least some of Bridgeway’s staff and tentatively plans to re-open on November 1st. No decision has been made as to whether or not detox services will be provided by DayMark. Those services are currently being provided by ARCA in Winston.
Bridgeway lost the contract to run the treatment center following the death of a detox patient in January. And there had been other problems shortly after Bridgeway’s opening.
Our county could easily use hundreds more than the 56 beds at the treatment center. These are needed services, and I hope that the transition to DayMark goes smoothly and substance abuse treatment in Guilford County continues to improve and expand.
