ARC to open new addiction recovery center in Owen County, Ky.

OWENTON, KY:  As Addiction Recovery Care (ARC) focuses on restoring lives, it aims to help revitalize communities. Senior leadership announced this week that a former hospital would soon house ARC’s newest women’s residential drug and alcohol treatment center in Owenton, Ky. The closest residential facility for women is at least 30 minutes away.

Located at the former Synergy Healthcare building off Roland Avenue, Eagle Creek Recovery Center will provide opioid detoxification, stabilization, residential treatment services, and career opportunities for women with substance use disorders. As ARC and developers work to restore the facility projected to open in April, the company is excited to bring its nationally recognized “Crisis to Career” model to a new community.

“Helping those in recovery find hope is key. Hope motivates people to engage and complete their treatment,” said ARC CEO Tim Robinson. “This also gives them a foundation for hope and a future,” said Robinson, a former prosecutor who founded the treatment organization after dealing with his own addiction.

Once fully operational, Eagle Creek will have the opportunity to serve nearly 100 clients daily suffering from a substance use disorder. 

The center will offer clients more than 20 hours of clinical programming weekly, with counseling provided by licensed counselors and peer support groups led by state-certified peer support specialists. State-certified case managers will also work with each client to improve their recovery environment by addressing family, educational, housing, and vocational needs. 

In addition, medical care will be provided, with each client seeing a medical provider as necessary for their general medical needs. ARC also plans to operate a “PICC Line” unit so individuals in need of care for health conditions can simultaneously receive treatment for addiction.

Matt Brown, ARC’s Senior Vice President of Administration, said one of his team’s priorities is promptly filling positions and providing orientation and training. They are partnering with the Owen County Career Center to announce and fill positions.

“We will hire personnel for a broad range of positions. From medical professionals to office staff. We will depend on the Owenton community to keep our program running,” said Brown.

The company expects to hire more than two dozen employees during the next month. A job fair is scheduled for February 25th, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Owen County Courthouse. You can also apply online at
