The Recovery Centers of America (RCA) at Devon has taken another step forward in combatting the low availability of mental health services by opening another, larger RCA location Malvern, according to a report from the Daily Local News. 

With the rise in mental health issues in all ages and demographics, there was a need for more treatment programs. The National Alliance on Mental Illness estimates that 44 million Americans suffer from some kind of mental illness. 

“Many people, especially young people, are suffering in silence right now but are unable to access treatment for their mental health conditions,” said Steve Wicke, CEO at RCA Devon and Malvern. 

There are many types of treatment available, including bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, trauma, personality disorders, as well as eating disorders.  

“We can really make a difference in people’s lives with the expansion of our mental health services,” said Dr. Peter Vernig, RCA’s Vice President of Mental Health Services. “There are not enough practitioners or treatment programs right now both nationally and statewide so people who need immediate mental health treatment often wait months for psychiatric appointments.”
