Santa Ana, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/25/2017 --BioCorRx Inc. (OTCMKTS:BICX) (the "Company"), a developer and provider of advanced solutions in the treatment of alcohol and opioid addictions, today announced that EnLite™ Clinics will implement the BioCorRx Recovery Program in three of its locations in Ohio. EnLite™ Clinics is the first group of centers in Ohio to implement BioCorRx Recovery Program, a non-addictive, medication-assisted treatment (MAT) program. The program combines a proprietary compounded naltrexone implant with a structured, proprietary counseling program specifically tailored for the treatment of alcoholism and opioid use disorder.
Brady Granier, CEO, President, and Director of BioCorRx, stated, "We believe that Ohio is a grossly undeserved addiction treatment market that is considered by many to be the epicenter of the opioid crisis with a reported 3,050 overdose deaths in 2015. Many in Ohio expect the number from 2016 to be even worse once finalized, making it the leading cause of accidental deaths in the state. One Ohioan is dying from a drug overdose every few hours, so hopefully our partnership with EnLite™ Clinics and Dr. Garcia will make a positive impact in the state. Together we will strive to bring awareness about our program to locals around Ohio."
Dr. David Garcia, Medical Director of EnLite™ Clinics, commented, "We are happy to offer our patients BioCorRx's innovative drug recovery program, a comprehensive, naltrexone focused medication-assisted treatment (MAT) program for alcohol and opioid addictions. We believe this cutting-edge and highly effective treatment modality has the potential to save many lives from this current epidemic. We plan to offer this program to those individuals who desire to wean off of buprenorphine treatment."
