KING OF PRUSSIA, PARecovery Centers of America (RCA) is joining a pioneering nationwide network aimed at increasing access to substance use treatment and improving patient outcomes. RCA, known for its comprehensive and individualized treatment programs, has partnered with Pelago, a digital clinic specializing in substance use management for businesses and health plans.

This partnership represents a significant advancement in substance use disorder treatment. RCA will leverage Pelago’s technology to extend its support structure, enhancing the treatment journey for those seeking sobriety.
