Origins Recovery Centers, a nationally-recognized provider of inpatient drug and alcohol treatment, announced today that it has substantially expanded the scope of medical coverage provided to patients at its beachside campus in Texas.

We are proud to be able to deliver an extraordinary level of medical care to our patients.

Origins Recovery Centers announced today that it has entered into an agreement which significantly enhances the scope and frequency of physician coverage provided to patients at its Texas campus. Led by Alex Kudisch, MD, DFAPA, Chief Medical Officer of Origins, the expanded on-site physician team includes an Internist, a Family Practice physician as well as several mid-level practitioners. Origins’ addiction nursing staff includes Registered Nurses and Licensed Vocational Nurses with psychiatric and acute detoxification experience.

The company said the main purpose of added physician coverage is to improve individualized medical care by enabling each patient to have daily encounters with facility physicians or mid-level practitioners. “A daily visit with medical staff while in treatment is consistent with the level and quality of care we believe is appropriate for our patients. Origins is thrilled to have Dr. Kudisch and his highly-experienced team treating our patients,” said Ben Levenson, Chief Executive Officer. Dr. Kudischs and his collegues will triage both psychiatric and most non-psychiatric health issues at Origins’ campus. “Origins treats patients with challenging and complex problems – not all psychological. Increasing our clinical capacity to assess, diagnose and medically manage hypertension, liver dysfunction, diabetes and a range of other disease processes is important in helping to achieve our principal goal of effectively treating chemical dependency and co-occurring disorders,” said Dr. Kudisch.

In connection with the medical services expansion, Origins is currently completing a facility renovation that includes new office space for its physicians as well as the addition of a medical exam room and small laboratory. The renovation will allow Origins to internalize certain medical and nursing procedures that it previously outsourced. “We are proud to be able to deliver an extraordinary level of medical care to our patients. Daily physician and nursing encounters have become rare in treatment facilities these days – Origins is committed to providing comprehensive substance abuse treatment that is innovative and consistent with the finest that is available,” said Rich Whitman, President and Executive Director.
