DCCCA’s Behavioral Health Services will expand on July 1st when it completes a merger with the South Central Kansas Foundation on Chemical Dependency located in Pratt, KS. Known previously as The Counseling Center, the program in Pratt provided outpatient drug abuse counseling services since 1979.
DCCCA Behavioral Health Services serves communities across the state of Kansas operating both outpatient and residential treatment centers in Lawrence, Pittsburg, and Wichita. The addition of the Pratt program expands DCCCA’s service area and provides new resources to residential treatment and referrals for the people in South Central Kansas.
The Pratt program will move forward doing business as DCCCA Pratt. Led by Tracy Green, the program looks forward to being a part of a nationally accredited organization along with the improved administrative support and technological advances providing them with the ability to streamline and increase their services while continuing to focus on their clients and community.
DCCCA currently coordinates programs across Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma to provide substance abuse prevention and treatment services, recruitment and training of foster homes, outreach and support for families in crisis, and traffic safety education and resources. DCCCA also cooperates with local, state, and national programs and associations to provide education, research, service, and resources when needed.
“The treatment services provided in Pratt are an excellent representation of the DCCCA mission to Improve Lives,” says Lori Alvarado, CEO of DCCCA, “We are excited to have Tracy Green and her team as part of the DCCCA organization. We expect to continue the quality services Pratt currently experiences, and hope to secure additional funding in the future to allow expansion of substance abuse treatment services. We look forward to being an excellent community partner and will collaborate with local leaders and organizations to address identified needs.”
