Recovery Center History

The Manning General Hospital Substance Abuse Treatment Unit (SAT Unit) opened in December 1982 after a study of the area found that substance abuse treatment services were needed. The Iowa Department of Health issued the Center a Certificate of Need, and clients were first accepted for residential treatment on January 17, 1983. The facility has grown and increased its services since.

When the hospital moved to its current location in 2014, the Recovery Center moved as well. The new space allowed for more natural light in patient rooms and space for indoor and outdoor recreation. Today the Recovery Center provides services including residential and outpatient treatment, detoxification, and education.

Initially there were only five staff members, however the Recovery Center’s staff now consists of a multi-disciplinary team including a medical director, an administrative assistant, 24-hour nursing services, four licensed substance abuse counselors, two full-time and four part-time counselor techs, a nurse care coordinator, family therapist, licensed clinical coordinator, psychologist, and a director.
