ARC to open women’s treatment center in Virginia

The Louisa-based Addiction Recovery Care (ARC) will open a women’s treatment center in Virginia.

ARC and Dickenson County Industrial Development Authority (IDA) announced the plans this week at a local forum.

“Today’s announcement underscores ARC’s commitment to saving lives and helping individuals reach long-term recovery no matter where they are,” Tim Robinson, Founder and CEO of Addiction Recovery Care, said. “We are excited to bring our Crisis to Career model to a community that will significantly benefit from having access to services that will transform lives and boost regional workforce participation.”

In southwest Virginia, communities have been hit disproportionately hard by the addiction crisis, which has worsened amid an alarming rise in fentanyl and synthetic opioids in the drug supply. The new project calls for crews to transform the former Ervinton Elementary School in Nora into a women’s treatment facility to open by the end of 2025.
