Eugene “Ed” Gonzalez

Eugene “Ed” Gonzalez stands outside of Sunrise Health and Recovery Residential Treatment Center in Show Low where he is the clinical program director.

A new substance abuse center will be opening its doors in the next few months, and Eugene “Ed” Gonzalez is formally welcoming anyone who may want or need its services soon available in the White Mountains.

The American Addiction Centers website released a study earlier this month about the general success rate of rehab facilities in the U.S. Unfortunately, the numbers aren’t trending in the direction most would hope for. It is estimated that less than 42% of the people who enter one of these facilities will actually complete the program. Of that figure, even less will remain sober after just their first month outside of treatment, and the number gets smaller the longer they are out of active treatment.

Seems to me that this project was rejected by neighborhood residents a few years ago. Now it's back and approved?
