UPO RELOCATES ITS COMPREHENSIVE TREATMENT CENTER

PR-RELOCATE-CTC WASHINGTON, DC – October 18, 2010 – The United Planning Organization today announced the relocation of its Comprehensive Treatment Center (http://www.upo.org/Service-Centers/SATC) to the grounds of the former DC General Hospital, 1900 Massachusetts Avenue, SE Washington, DC. The UPO CTC facility is located in Building 13 on the campus.

``We believe our new location is much more conducive to UPO`s ultimate goal of assisting DC residents overcome opioid addictions, while at the same time helping their families better deal with the many problems associated with those addictions,`` observed Frances Bowie, director of UPO`s newly formed Community Health Division.

The Comprehensive Treatment Center provides medically-managed treatment to opiate dependent individuals. CTC is a provider of substance abuse services under a grant from the District of Columbia Department of Health, Addiction Prevention and Recovery Program and the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.

Newly appointed acting center director Brenda Kelly says patients are currently transitioning to the new location for services.
