From our humble beginnings on a ranch near Grants Pass, Oregon, over 40 years ago, Addictions Recovery Center has steadily grown to meet the demand for drug and alcohol treatment in southern Oregon. With little money and tremendous optimism, Mariam Kelley and her husband envisioned a treatment program that would provide relief, support and tools for veterans suffering from alcohol addiction. Thus was born the Alcohol Rehabilitation Center. In the 1970s the center moved 25 miles to Gold Hill, Oregon, became a 501 (c) 3 charitable organization, and increased capacity to 12 men. We also expanded to incorporate inpatient treatment for women.
As the regions population increased, it became apparent that there was not only a growing need for alcohol treatment, but also a demand for more services for people with other addiction problems. In 1986, we became Rogue Valley Addictions Recovery Center, Inc. And by the early 1990s, our focus began shifting to fully embrace Addictions Recovery Center’s function as a health service provider. In 1993, we became a licensed outpatient treatment provider, incorporating a continuum of five levels of care: residential treatment, day treatment, outpatient and intensive outpatient treatment, and a continuing after-care program.
Today, Addictions Recovery Center's services reflect the growing need for state-of-the-art professional treatment and standards. We incorporate the current trend in models of treatment to meet individual client needs. Our treatment team is renowned for creativity, innovation and true concern for our clients at every stage of recovery. The agency is governed by a board of directors that represent a cross section of leaders in our community and includes former beneficiaries of Addictions Recovery Center's services.
Other services include the William H. Moore Center and a Walk-In Clinic. Now more than ever before in our history, community support and advocacy are critical to meet our operational bottom line. We are optimistic about Addiction Recovery Center's future and confident in the commitment of Jackson County to build a healthy and viable community. Together, we are striving to meet the needs of our community.
