As the opioid crisis continues to grip national headlines and Governor Noem turns attention to battling meth in South Dakota, Avera is opening its Addiction Care Center in Sioux Falls. The center emphasizes holistic healing and community among its residents. The newly completed center began accepting patients on December 11th. 

Dr. Matthew Stanley is the Vice President of the Avera Behavioral Health Clinical Service Line. He explains the philosophy behind the system of care and design of the new facility.
