The Trumbull County Mental Health and Recovery Board and FSR Parkman, a new Warren-based, 16-bed detox and treatment center scheduled to open Feb. 19, received at $250,000 grant, a one-time funding from the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services.

FSR Parkman, 4930 Enterprise Drive, will use the grant to help pay for staff, rent, utilities, food, supplies, maintenance and repair of the new facility, said Scott Wilkes, FSR Parkman owner, who said the facility will offer individualized addiction services that follow the evidence-based treatment model used by First Step Recovery, a Warren-based detox and treatment center that opened in 2015.

Also, First Step’s leadership team will provide consulting services at FSR Parkman, according to a news release.

“We understand the devastation caused by substance-use disorders and how addiction has wreaked havoc in Trumbull County. This new funding will help FSR Parkman meet the growing demand for evidence-based addiction services,” said Cindy Woodford, consulting director for FSR Parkman.

“The new detox beds are imperative to getting people the help they need when they need it,” said April Caraway, executive director of the Trumbull County Mental Health and Recovery Board.

In addition to 16 detox beds, FSR Parkman will provide addiction treatment services such as individual, group and family counseling, relapse prevention, case management and 12-step meetings.
