KENT — High Watch Recovery Center President and CEO Matt Walton has announced the doors are now open to the center’s new Treatment Living Center.

The announcement was made during a recent ribbon cutting ceremony.

The facility signifies the next generation of substance-abuse treatment and allows High Watch to offer a more advanced, wide range of care.

“There is an epidemic of substance abuse in our state and this country, so the need for services to effectively combat this problem is critical,” said Walton.

“Our new Treatment Living Center allows us to provide high quality, effective care to our visitors who are battling a wide range of complex addiction issues,” he said.

The High Watch Treatment Living Center is designed to accommodate 38 guests that can be safely and effectively monitored by a single qualified staff member to improve the efficiency of care delivery.
