We are proud to share some recent media coverage of Highland Rivers Health! Three of the clips are relate to the CSB’s recent hire of Debbie Strotz as director of operations and recovery services – note the excellent messaging about recovery in the piece from the Catersville paper (it also appeared on the front page of yesterday’s print edition)!

We’d also like to release two (2) clips from an article published in the April Wall Street Journal about addiction counselors that featured quotes from CEO, Melanie Dallas, and photos from the Highland Recovery Center in Jasper have also been included.
