Read Full Story Here: New 22-bed rehab center opens in Boise
Northpoint Recovery is a new state-licensed, 22-bed detox and residential treatment center for adults in Boise. CEO Benjamin Seymour of Eagle, and co-owner Robert Cooney of Boise, invested their personal funds in the $1.5 million project. The center employs 45 people and pays 100 percent of the cost of employees’ health insurance premiums. “Boise has needed a detox center specializing in treating addiction for a long time,” Seymour says. “For years, those of us working with addicts have had to send people out of state to find these services. … Now we have a program specifically for addicts and alcoholics in Boise.” Northpoint offers 24-hour, 365-day-a-year addiction treatment, alcoholism treatment and detoxification for alcohol, heroin, prescription drugs, stimulants and other addictive substances. After a patient detoxes, Seymour says, Northpoint offers inpatient counseling and aftercare planning, as well as yoga and exercise.
