Celebrating 10 years of client medical care
Ten years ago, the staff of Alpha Home had a dream—on site medical care for clients. With the partnership with the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio and Dr. Richard Usatine, this dream became a reality.
The Student-Run Free Clinic at Alpha Home is priceless to Alpha Home because it offers personal medical care to women who, in many instances, have had no medical care for years. The medical care a client receives can provide that woman with the good health she needs to complete her treatment stay at Alpha Home.
The Student-Run Free Clinic gives educational opportunities to the medical and nursing students on addiction as well. They see firsthand that those who suffer from substance use disorder are people who are sick and hurting, and our residential clients are treated with respect and dignity.
The community at-large also benefits—almost $250,000 is saved in emergency room costs (2012). The 2012 budget for the clinic was $20,400.
Truly, a win-win collaboration.
Ropin & Hopin'
Mark your calendars!
The second annual Ropin' & Hopin' event has been scheduled for Oct. 13, 2015, at the Buckhorn Saloon and Museum. Johnny Bush and his band will provide the entertainment.
Ropin' & Hopin' is a evening of food, fun, music and dancing in celebration of Alpha Home.
See y'all there!
CARF International has accredited Alpha Home for three years for the Residential and Outpatient Substance Abuse Treatment Programs and the Family First Program.
This accreditation extends through May 2018. CARF first accreditated Alpha Home in 2012.
