Branson area residents who are struggling with addictions will soon have some local help.
CoxHealth announced Thursday they will be expanding the CoxHealth Center for Addictions to Branson.
“I am pleased to share that Cox Center for Addictions is opening a location in Branson, Missouri, June 11,” CoxHealth CEO Steve Edwards said. “We have many mental health challenges to address together as a community, including supporting those vulnerable to this illness.”
Patients will be given their initial treatment at the Center for Addiction’s Springfield location, but can receive their follow-up treatment at the Branson facility, located at 121 Cahill Road.
“As the needs of our region have evolved, we have worked to expand and adapt, and add new ways to serve,” Tressa Moyle, director of the Center, said in a statement. “We believe that this increased access to services will help even more patients develop strategies to overcome issues related to substance use, which can have devastating impacts if left untreated.”
The Branson facility will initially offer medication management for substance abuse disorders and services for patients with chronic pain management. Cox plans to add additional services as the service grows in Branson.
