Thank you for the article published in January describing the dilemma of regulating addiction treatment services in our state. We applaud the efforts of all concerned.  
    As our company enters into the arena of addiction treatment for alcohol and other drugs, as well as eating disorders, we welcome the vigilance of those people who have the best interests of both the patients and the public in mind. The overseeing of services is something that DCF cannot tackle alone, and I am sure they welcome the help.
    Other health-care delivery systems have had to be regulated in the past to ensure better care. Hospitals, nursing homes and assisted-living facilities all require diligence to maintain their level of care. Addiction treatment facilities should not be exempt.
    Quality providers of addiction treatment will not resist reasonable regulations. Ones that do need to examine their own motives and methods.
    Having operated a facility in Boca Raton for 21 years without incident, I look forward to beginning this new venture with partners in patient care who are concerned about the community and the client.
    We plan to open our first program in the spring and welcome requests now to begin community education, provide speakers, address your group, or answer any questions you may have about treatment. We want to be able to stay in touch with our community and its needs. This is what good neighbors do.
