The Shores Treatment and Recovery Center Joins as P.A.A.R.I. Partner to Offer Addiction Recovery Services to Participants
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla — Gloucester Police Chief Leonard Campanello and businessman John Rosenthal, co-founders of The Police Assisted Addiction Recovery Initiative (P.A.A.R.I.), are pleased to announce that The Shores Treatment & Recovery has partnered with P.A.A.R.I. to offer addiction recovery services to participants in the program.
Last summer, Chief Campanello and Rosenthal launched P.A.A.R.I., a nonprofit organization created to support law enforcement agencies as they work with those suffering from addiction. Participating police departments place those who come to them for help into treatment programs, instead of jail. As P.A.A.R.I.’s partnerships with treatment facilities continues to grow, so does its ability to help police departments who want to assist their communities in saving lives.
The Shores has already accepted participants from P.A.A.R.I.’s law enforcement partners in Scarborough, Maine and Gloucester, Mass., many of them on scholarship programs.
“It is an honor to partner with P.A.A.R.I. to offer recovery services and professional treatment to those who are suffering from the disease of addiction,” said Lyle Fried, CEO of The Shores Treatment & Recovery Center. “We feel that this partnership will help provide additional resources to those who are suffering from addiction, and their families as well. The Shores’ goal is to provide the optimal environment and services to give our clients the best opportunity for life-long recovery and happiness.”
The Shores Treatment & Recovery was founded to provide individualized treatment plans for clients, with integrated holistic and medical methods to heal the mind, body and spirit in a nurturing environment. Treatment services include detox, mental health intensive outpatient, intensive outpatient, partial hospitalization, a stabilization program, a 12-step spiritual program and an alumni program. The Shores also offers specialized rehab programs for men, women, young adults and executives.
Chief Campanello and Rosenthal are eager to work with The Shores Treatment and Recovery and applaud them for taking the initiative to provide additional resources to P.A.A.R.I. participants.
The Shores Treatment & Recovery was founded to provide a more effective model of treatment for drug and alcohol addiction than currently offered in the industry. The goal is to provide the optimal environment and services to allow those suffering from addiction the very best opportunity at life-long recovery and happiness. As an industry leader with Joint Commission Accreditation, five levels of state substance abuse licenses, a medical group license, a pharmacy license and a housing licensing, the Shores holds itself to the highest standards and ethics.
A highly trained and experienced staff of psychiatrists, doctors and registered nurses offer trauma-specific care, grief counseling, and a robust family-intensive program. The Shores addresses the root causes of addiction through a variety of therapies, including neurotransmitter replacement therapies, neurofeedback, brain exercises, physical exercise and movement therapy, music therapy, art therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, massage therapy, chiropractic care and auriculotherapy.
P.A.A.R.I. was started to support local police departments as they work with opioid addicts. Rather than arrest our way out of the problem of drug addiction, P.A.A.R.I. committed police departments:
• Encourage opioid drug users to seek recovery
• Help distribute life saving opioid blocking drugs to prevent and treat overdoses
• Connect people suffering with opioid addiction with treatment programs and facilities
• Provide resources to other police departments and communities that want to do more to fight the opioid addiction epidemic
P.A.A.R.I. was created by Gloucester Police Chief Leonard Campanello and John Rosenthal to bridge the gap between the police department and persons suffering from the disease of opiate addiction who are seeking recovery. Since its founding, more than 40 police departments in 14 states have joined as partners with the initiative.
