The Recovery Center aims to help more people

The chemical dependency rehabilitation unit at Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center San Pedro, known as the Recovery Center, has provided help and long-term sobriety to hundreds of people in the South Bay for 45 years. Now the center has plans to reach even more people seeking treatment for alcohol or drug abuse.

The center will soon extend its intake services around the clock so that people in need can seek help any time of the day or night to connect with an intake counselor and begin treatment, says Courtney Harrison, RN, Director of Behavioral Health.

“We want to reach out and help more patients,” Harrison says. “This program has been in the community for 40-plus years. Dr. Crescenzo Pisano is the medical director of the center. He has a passion for the center and has been serving the San Pedro community for many years. It’s what he loves to do. Born at the medical center and raised in San Pedro, Dr. Pisano has a strong connection with the community.”

The Recovery Center, which is certified by The Joint Commission, offers detox care, alcohol and drug rehabilitation and an outpatient recovery day program.

Medicare and many types of private insurance are accepted. For more information on the Recovery Center, please call 310-241-4021 or visit providence.org/recoverycenter.
