Molina Healthcare of California recently donated furniture and other supplies to facilitate a total room makeover for a space that will be used as a safe, private client area at McAlister Institute, one of San Diego County’s largest alcohol and drug treatment providers.
The donation was made as part of Molina’s Make a Difference Day outreach in local communities.
“Molina is dedicated to making an impact in our community by providing resources to individuals in need,” said Abbie Totten, plan president of Molina Healthcare. “McAlister offers a safe place to seek treatment and get the critical support required for individual recovery journeys.”
Open to all individuals seeking treatment, McAlister provides high-quality services and a comprehensive array of programs for the prevention and treatment of alcoholism and drug addiction. These include intervention services, adult outpatient and residential treatment and detox programs, group homes for adolescents ages 12 to 17, and housing for women who are reunifying with their children through Child Welfare Services.
“We are grateful for the difference Molina has made by creating this space at our facility,” said Hollie Lopez, program manager at the South Bay Regional Recovery Center. “Having a therapy room will have a huge impact on our clients by helping them to feel more comfortable and open to the recovery process.”
Molina will also donate supplies for the McAlister laundry room.
