COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa— Alegent Health Psychiatric Associates has temporarily closed its satellite location at 411 E. Broadway street to make repairs. The building suffered approximately $15,000 in damage after a vehicle drove into it late last week. Patients who normally receive counseling sessions or treatment at the Alegent Health Psychiatric Associates Addiction Recovery Center are being asked to go to the main office located at 801 Harmony St., suite 302.

“We apologize to our clients for this inconvenience and will work hard to provide seamless, high-quality services during this transition,” said Michael Anderson, vice president of Behavioral Services for Alegent Health. “We thank the community for their continued patience and understanding as we work to make necessary building repairs.”

Last summer Alegent Health expanded their chemical dependency services in southwest Iowa to address the growing need for substance abuse treatment, allow for additional counselors and provide easier access.

The Psychiatric Associates Addition Recovery Center deals with teen and adult chemical dependency issues including alcohol, drugs, prescription drugs and pain medication. Programs include group and individual sessions, along with family support groups.

For more information on chemical dependency, please call the information and referral line at (402) 717-HOPE and choose option one.
