Satori Waters Joins as P.A.A.R.I. Partner to Offer Addiction Recovery Services to Participants
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Gloucester Police Chief Leonard Campanello and John Rosenthal, co-founders of The Police Assisted Addiction Recovery Initiative (P.A.A.R.I.), are pleased to announce that Satori Waters Treatment Center has partnered with P.A.A.R.I. to offer addiction recovery services to participants in the program.
Satori Waters has already accepted participants from P.A.A.R.I.’s Scarborough, Maine and Lodi, Ohio law enforcement partners.
Last summer, Chief Campanello and businessman John Rosenthal launched P.A.A.R.I. — a nonprofit organization created in response to Gloucester Police Department’s ANGEL Initiative. Rather than arrest their way out of the problem of drug addiction, police departments place those who come to them for help into treatment programs. As partnerships with recovery centers continue to grow, so does P.A.A.R.I.’s ability to support law enforcement agencies who want to assist their communities in saving lives.
“Satori Waters is honored to officially partner with P.A.A.R.I. to offer professional treatment that participants need to fully recover,” said Dr. Barry Reiman, co-founder and Chief Operating Officer at Satori Waters. “Through our partnership, we will work to educate patients and their families while working toward eliminating the negative stigma surrounding addiction.”
Satori Waters is made up of three treatment facilities in Southern Florida, which have a total of 284 beds. Using evidence-based treatment to maximize recovery, Satori Waters incorporates several facets of substance abuse treatment, including psychological evaluations, cognitive behavioral techniques, neurofeedback intervention, group-based therapy, individual therapy, interactive journaling and principles based on the 12-step program.
Chief Campanello and Rosenthal are pleased to welcome Satori Waters as a partner and commend them for taking the initiative to provide additional resources to P.A.A.R.I. They are eager to work with Satori Waters to continue their mission of saving lives and destigmatizing the disease of addiction.
Founded in 2013, Satori Waters offers its clients the same methodologies no matter their level of care. With three oceanside treatment locations — one in Delray Beach and two in Ft. Lauderdale — Satori Waters constantly strives to meet the highest standards of addiction treatment through evidence-based approaches.
In its state-of-the-art treatment centers, the staff at Satori Waters aims to reduce symptom severity for those suffering from addiction and to provide patients with the skills they need to lead a life free from substance abuse and dependence. Individualized treatment plans, which are created collaboratively between the patient and clinical staff, serve to measure individual goals that are directly related to the substance abuse problem. As clients move through the treatment process, a team of clinical experts continuously reevaluates their progress and introduces beneficial methods of treatment to maximize recovery.
P.A.A.R.I. was started to support local police departments as they work with opioid addicts. Rather than arrest our way out of the problem of drug addiction, P.A.A.R.I. committed police departments:
• Encourage opioid drug users to seek recovery
• Help distribute life saving opioid blocking drugs to prevent and treat overdoses
• Connect people suffering with opioid addiction with treatment programs and facilities
• Provide resources to other police departments and communities that want to do more to fight the opioid addiction epidemic
P.A.A.R.I. was created by Gloucester Police Chief Leonard Campanello and John Rosenthal to bridge the gap between the police department and persons suffering from the disease of opiate addiction who are seeking recovery. Since its founding, more than 40 police departments in 14 states have joined as partners with the initiative.
