(HUNTINGTON)— The Provider Response Organization for Addiction Care and Treatment, or PROACT, will host an open house and dedication ceremony Wednesday, Nov. 7 from 4-6 p.m. at its center located at 800 20th St., Huntington.
Tours and refreshments will begin at 4 p.m. with the dedication plaque unveiling ceremony at 5 p.m. The open house and dedication ceremony are open to the public.
The PROACT center, now in operation, was created to address the clinical, behavioral, spiritual and professional issues of those affected by substance use. It functions as the centralized hub for treatment, recovery, therapy, education, research, workforce opportunities and support for those affected by addiction.
PROACT’s goal is to offer individuals and their families a viable system that provides positive outcomes. Partner institutions within PROACT include Cabell Huntington Hospital, St. Mary’s Medical Center, Marshall Health, Valley Health and Thomas Health. The non-profit organization relies on funding from its founding institutions, grant awards, business operations and private donations to sustain its efforts.
