HCRC is a privately owned corporation offering outpatient services that specialize in the treatment of opioid dependency. HCRC has a structure similar to many medical and doctor's offices. The major focus is maintaining a strong commitment to high quality and compassionate care to substance use disorder patients.
Health Care Resource Centers (HCRC) was founded in 1989, opening its first location in Westfield, MA in response to the need to treat SUD during the AIDS epidemic. It was founded by two emergency room physicians, Alan L. Dayno, M.D. and Steven J. Kassels, M.D. (current Medical Director); and Edward J. Blain, M.Ed. (current CEO), a public health administrator. The organization operates 16 locations in four New England states as a response to the evolving needs of the opioid dependent patient.
