(Center Point, TX – December 19, 2011) — Starlite Recovery Center, an adult and adolescent substance abuse and alcohol rehabilitation treatment center in Texas, has announced the achievement of TRICARE certification.  This certification allows the facility to provide addiction treatment services to any of the 9.6 million eligible beneficiaries of the uniformed services, retirees and their families worldwide.

“We appreciate the commitment you have made to provide facility-based behavioral health services to the uniformed service members, their families and retirees,” said Derrick Gore, TRICARE Provider Relations and Credentialing Director, in a written notice.  “This will play an important role in assuring the wellbeing of our country’s military community.”

“Being a TRICARE provider means that you are treating America’s heroes – the people making sacrifices to keep America strong and safe,” reads the TRICARE website.  The healthcare plan utilizes military healthcare as the main delivery system, but augments it with a civilian network of providers and facilities like that of Starlite Recovery Center.

“Starlite is already one of the nation’s premier military recovery programs,” said Four-Star General Barry McCaffrey, the former White House Drug Czar and current board member to CRC Health Group, Starlite’s parent company.  “We honor the treatment experts who do everything possible to assure our servicemen and women ongoing, productive lives.  It is a national model facility in how its professionals help our military and veterans. It has made an important contribution over the past several years and now as our combat missions end in Iraq and Afghanistan.”

For over three decades, Starlite Recovery Center has offered clients an unmatched natural environment in which to recover from the devastating effects of drug addiction and alcoholism. With a professional, interdisciplinary staff of physicians, counselors and nurses, and a focus on innovative chemical dependency treatment, Starlite provides the individualized therapeutic structure essential for a client’s lasting recovery success.  Starlite Recovery Center is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and licensed by the Texas Department of State Health Services. 

“We are very excited about the opportunity to provide services to our military personnel, both active and retired, as well as their families” said Executive Director of Starlite Recovery Center Amy Swetnam. “We are proud of the brave contributions they have made to our country and we are here to support them as needed.”

Starlite Recovery Center is a member of CRC Health Group, the most comprehensive network of specialized behavioral care services in the nation. With this certification, Starlite becomes the fourth CRC facility to provide rehabilitation services to the military through TRICARE; the others are Life Center of Galax, Twelve Oaks Recovery Center and Wilmington Treatment Center. 

CRC Health Group offers the largest array of personalized treatment options, allowing individuals, families, and professionals to choose the most appropriate treatment setting for their behavioral, addiction, weight management and therapeutic education needs. CRC is committed to making its services widely and easily available, while maintaining a passion for delivering advanced treatment.
