Former High School In Arkansas Gets Remodel, Set To Open As A Residential Center For Addiction Treatment

Natural State Recovery Centers (NSRC) has just opened the only drug and alcohol addiction treatment center in Arkansas to offer all levels of care, treating people from crisis to sustainability.  It is no secret that Arkansas, along with other states in the southern region of the United States are lacking the levels of care that are necessary for treating drug and alcohol addiction. Natural State Recovery is on a mission to change that by transforming the former Oak Grove High School Campus in North Little Rock. With the addition of detox and residential services, NSRC will be a full-service program assisting families and their loved ones in the pursuit of recovery from addiction.

The goal at NSRC is to remove the many barriers adults face when putting their lives back together by offering a holistic approach to addiction treatment. An important part of the rehabilitation program is that they provide these and other necessary tools for their clients’ lasting recovery. The team at NSRC completely understands what it takes to recover from addiction. In fact, many of the team members can personally relate to their clients by virtue of having gone through the ongoing process of recovery, themselves. “When we normalize the conversation surrounding addiction, people will feel more comfortable seeking help. The quicker we can change how we view addiction, the sooner we can eliminate unnecessary judgements on people who simply need help. Individuals seeking treatment are not bad people trying to get good, they are sick people trying to get well,” says CEO, Christopher Dickie.

You will immediately notice some features that set them apart from other providers:

  • All levels of care in one place: Medical Detox, Residential, Outpatient and Sober Living
  • Nationally accredited and State licensed
  • Highly trained and passionate medical staff 24/7
  • Medication for Opioid Use Disorder (Suboxone and Vivitrol) for those who qualify
