Lewisville, Texas (September 28, 2017) – MedMark Treatment Centers El Paso, a BayMark Health Services Company, announced in September it is now accepting Texas Medicaid, making quality, evidence-based opioid addiction treatment more accessible to the people of El Paso.
MedMark Treatment Centers El Paso, formerly known as El Paso Methadone Maintenance, offers medically supervised, outpatient methadone maintenance treatment supported by individualized counseling, relapse prevention education and community resource referrals.
Grace Diaz, a former counselor at El Paso Methadone, returned to MedMark Treatment Centers as the Treatment Center Director this year. Well-known and respected by long-time patients and the local recovery community, Grace said, “We are so pleased to be able to accept Medicaid and commercial insurance, which is so critical for patient’s ability to access our services.”
