Annual Report 2023

(January 1, 2023 to December 31, 2023)



Executive Summary


Wellness Recovery (WR) concluded its fourth full calendar year of operation in 2023 providing care to individuals with substance use disorder. We view addiction as a brain based disease that requires medical management along with counseling interventions. Especially vulnerable to this continuing world addiction pandemic are impoverished and non-dominant culture individuals. Wellness Recovery, through the dedicated efforts of our Counselors, Nurses, Technicians, and Physicians delivered evidenced based care 24 hours per day, 7 days per week following the standards of the American Association of Addiction Medicine (ASAM). WR, in cooperation with Tracy Counseling Center, continued to offer free inpatient and outpatient care to any first responder seeking treatment for addiction issues. First responders, health care and other front-line workers continued to be exposed to extreme levels of traumatic stress in the post-CoVID world that places them at risk for addiction.


Wellness Recovery continues to provide an innovative treatment approach that incorporates a medical model (i.e., medications for opiate use disorder) with individualized holistic treatment. Dr. Caitlin Corbitt, Medical Director and Psychiatrist, and her staff provide evidence based medical and psychiatric treatment to manage withdrawal symptoms and address overall well-being. Following the ASAM model, we believe that addiction treatment must coincide with mental health treatment and offer individual, group, psychoeducational counseling services. WR also provided warm hand offs to outpatient and social service partners.


The management of this disease requires a highly caregivers, WR staff members attended required trainings in CPR, First aid, Emergency management, Infectious Disease, and Confidentiality Policies. Professional staff also completed additional trainings in recovery support, trauma and culturally informed counseling.


WR values feedback. Client satisfaction was assessed through a blind online survey. General satisfaction was measured at high or very high on most of the survey questions. Of particular note, were comments of professionalism and extra effort that exceed client expectations. This key statistic reinforces our core employee expectations of non-judgmental empathy towards all persons.


While WR is relatively small for an inpatient facility, it is large in heart and focused on delivering care to a diverse population. Last year we provided care to 343 individuals. Ages of our clients ranged from 18 to 71 and crossed the diversity spectrum of age, gender, race, culture, socio-economic status and gender identity. WR believes that addiction, as a disease, shows no prejudice. A separate section of this report breakdown admission demographics. Our clients sought addiction treatment for a wide variety of issues with opioid and alcohol dependency being the top two. Our staff all share a pledge to help and support those need in a non-judgmental and empathic way. We hold positive regard for all people and look forward to our service to Fayette and near-by counties in the next year.
