“Addiction impacts all communities. At BCCS, we go where we are needed. Communities truly benefit from having prevention and treatment programs that are local; accessibility of these services is vital to those who need it,” said Dr. Fahey. “BCCS is determined to meet the needs of our communities head-on, with care, empathy and vigor.”

Delaware’s Lt. Gov. Bethany Hall-Long was the featured speaker at the grand opening and talked about the importance of treatment and prevention services to the Milford community.

“As chair of Delaware’s Behavioral Health Consortium, I know all too well the gaps in services in lower Delaware,” said Lt. Gov Hall-Long. “This new treatment center will provide so many essential services to Delawareans struggling with addiction. We know that all eyes are on Delaware, and we believe we can be a model for the rest of the nation and create a system that works for everyone.”
