At START Treatment & Recovery Centers, we believe there is a right way to treat people. With compassion and care, we offer holistic care to those with opioid addictions and co-occurring mental and medical illnesses. Since 1969, we have committed our efforts to transitioning our patients towards healthier lifestyles.
As challenging as our work may be, we deem it necessary to celebrate and highlight our many accomplishments by way of our annual Signature Event. An always awe-inspiring evening, our annual reception, comprised of an exciting program, is indeed a time for supporters and friends of START to join hands and celebrate the tremendous efforts made daily by our agency. In previous years, our reception has successfully raised funds to ensure that we are able to continue to provide quality, compassionate and holistic care to the patients and adolescents we serve.
With the theme, Breaking the Cycle of Addiction, this year’s reception will be held on October 20th, 2016, at the Midtown Loft & Terrace in Manhattan. In addition to highlighting our life-changing work, we are pleased to share that we will be honoring Mark Parrino, President of the American Association for the Treatment of Opioid Dependence with our Dr. Beny J. Primm Humanitarian Award.
As Chief Executive Officer, I am especially grateful for the support of all who provide great value to the work and mission of START Treatment & Recovery Centers. Therefore, I invite you to join us at this year’s event. I’m certain that together, we can break the cycle of addiction.
