Summit BHC and Athletes Recovery provide access to quality addiction treatment.

Summit Behavioral Healthcare (Summit) is proud to announce a new partnership with Athletes Recovery. Athletes Recovery was created by Kenny & Tina Greene and is the premier option for top athletes to access treatment for addiction. The mission of Athletes Recovery is to create a new standard of care for athletes struggling with addiction and mental health issues both Collegiate & Professional (Active and Retired) by addressing some of the unique challenges facing them. Understanding that athletes feel most comfortable around other athletes, we have created a team atmosphere for recovery. Summit, now having three programs across the country, has the talent, leadership and ability to meet the unique needs of this population. The flagship center for Summit, Great Oaks Recovery Center (Great Oaks) is the current program of choice for Athletes Recovery clients.    

Athletes Recovery's Kenny Greene commented, "We are honored to partner with a world class group and facility, Summit Behavioral Healthcare and Great Oaks Recovery, allowing us to provide a safe, secure environment for our athletes to rediscover their health, sobriety, and life’s direction. Although recovery has historically been an individual journey, we believe in the strength of team, the comfort of athletes working with and around other athletes. This is incorporated for current professional athletes in an elite, private fitness/training facility and for retired athletes through a physical rehabilitation component necessary to address long term pain issues."

“We are very fortunate to have been given the opportunity to work with Athletes Recovery,” comments Dustin Whitesell, CEO of Great Oaks. “ We do not take our responsibility lightly and strive to give quality treatment to these clients (Athletes Recovery) and all that come to us for help,” continued Dustin.
