Happy 40th anniversary to EPIC Behavioral Healthcare

400-EPIC-40THPatti Greenough, CEO of EPIC Behavioral Healthcare, is celebrating today; it is the 40th anniversary of the organization’s founding on October 10, 1973.

Recently, Greenough announced that EPIC closed the purchase of 8,200-square-foot residential facility that is the future home of Epic Recovery Center. The 16-bed facility will provide care for individuals in the grip of a substance abuse crisis and is “on schedule” for a January 1, 2014 grand opening.

The Florida Legislature earlier this year approved a $1.5 million disbursement for detox center operations and Greenough said that will be recurring money — not just a one-time award.

EPIC Behavioral Healthcare is the sponsoring agency of Big Brothers Big Sisters of St Johns County and holds two major fundraisers each year; the Taste of St Augustine and EPIC Flower and Garden Expo.
