According to a press release, Landmark Recovery will be opening Praxis of Norfolk by Landmark Recovery, which will be located at 1516 Harmon St. This facility will be the largest single addition treatment center accepting Medicaid in the Norfolk area.

“Currently, only 5% of recovery beds available in our entire country accept Medicaid,” said Michelle
Dubey, Chief Clinical Officer for Landmark Recovery. “Praxis of Norfolk can help more than 720 Medicaid
members each year find recovery from an addiction. Our goal in opening this facility is to help save lives
and make addiction treatment more accessible to those who need it.”

The center will provide services such as medical detoxing, residential treatment and outpatient services to people suffering from substance use disorder. Unlike other facilities, Landmark welcomes patients with a dual diagnosis ( those with mental health issues and substance use addictions).

Landmark Recovery will celebrate the grand opening of the new facility with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on September 19 at 1 p.m. visitors will also have the chance to meet the staff, and tour the facility.
