Join Rx Outreach and ARCA in celebrating the opening of their new community pharmacy in St. Louis, providing mental health and addiction treatment services for adults.

Rx Outreach is proud to open a new program, the RxO Community Pharmacy co-located with the Assisted Recovery Center of America (ARCA). The pharmacy will specialize in medications for mental health and opioid addiction as well as serving the surrounding community.

ST. LOUIS, March 19, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Rx Outreach, the country’s largest nonprofit digital pharmacy, will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony 2:30 p.m., March 28, 10208 West Florissant Ave. to commemorate the opening its first community pharmacy through a partnership with Assisted Recovery Center of America (ARCA). ARCA, a St. Louis-based behavioral health organization and the largest in Missouri, provides mental health and addiction treatment services for adult patients to help promote healing and health.

Located in north St. Louis County’s Dellwood community, the building consists of shared, separate space for ARCA and Rx Outreach. After a patient receives treatment, they can conveniently enter the RxO Community Pharmacy for affordable prescriptions. The objective of the partnership is to offer a barrier-free approach to wellness and empower patients to take charge of their care.

We are pleased to partner with ARCA to help individuals achieve their goals of recovery,” said Rx Outreach president and CEO Julie Erickson. “Our country is experiencing both a substance abuse and mental health crisis, and we recognize the challenges people face in recovery. We believe the proximity of the ARCA’s treatment center and our pharmacy will help eliminate barriers and promote healthy outcomes.”

According to a 2023 State of Mental Health in America report by Mental Health of America, 21% of adults (51 million) have a mental health disorder and 15% of adults (37 million) had a substance abuse addiction in the past year. Missouri is facing a mental health and substance abuse crisis, and the highest mortality rates due to substance abuse are found in north St. Louis County. Currently, the clinic serves 741 active patients within a two-mile radius of the Dellwood Clinic.

“ARCA’s commitment to take treatment where it is most needed was fulfilled with the opening of the clinic in Dellwood in early January. This is the third clinic we operate in the St Louis area, said ARCA President and Founder Percy Menzies. “In addition, ARCA collaborates with over a dozen treatment centers, provides telemedicine services at 39 sites and transitional living facilities for over 160 patients. A key component of successful treatment is having a pharmacy onsite. We are immensely pleased to collaborate with Rx Outreach in this endeavor.”
