Center City, Minn. — Hazelden, one of the world's largest and most respected private, nonprofit alcohol and drug addiction treatment centers, has announced its membership in Community Health Partners Network, a preferred provider network serving individuals and employers in Collier and southern Lee counties, Fla.

"We are proud and excited to become part of a system of health professionals who share the same philosophy as Hazelden—that addiction is a chronic illness, like diabetes, and that treatment works,” said Michael Demask, PhD, executive director of Hazelden in Naples.

Hazelden's facility in Naples, which opened earlier this year, features an innovative recovery community approach coordinating recovery principles in life and work. It serves adults needing residential and outpatient addiction treatment services with free online recovery support and coaching for up to 18 months post treatment.

The facility integrates community partners in delivery of care to reduce treatment costs and provide a continuous system of recovery support for patients at work, home, and in the community.

"Our mission is to improve the community's access to quality healthcare providers for all aspects of their healthcare needs,” said Jeanne Davis, RN, COHN-S/CM,QRP, Director of Medical Services for Community Health Partners.
