Los Angeles, May 2, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioCorRx, Inc. (BICX), developer of the Start Fresh program, announces the expansion of its program into Georgia with the planned opening of a Start Fresh Recovery clinic in Atlanta by Dr. George Fallieras next month. BioCorRx has entered into a distribution agreement with Dr. Fallieras, medical director of Start Fresh Recovery, who has appeared on the Emmy Award-winning show The Doctors recently, as well as on other local media outlets. "We are pleased that Dr. Fallieras has seen a tremendous amount of success at his other clinics affording him the opportunity to expand the national footprint of The Start Fresh Program", stated CEO Kent Emry. The clinic will be located at 5569 Peachtree Dunwoody Rd. Ste. 280 Atlanta, GA 30342.
Expansion into Atlanta is a sensible strategic maneuver for the Company as the Atlanta Metropolitan area is the second largest in the Southeast consisting of 39 counties with an estimated population of 6.1 million people. Atlanta is centrally located in the Southeast region of the country making it easily accessible to potential patients in nearby states and municipalities as well.
According to MADD, Georgia recently saw an 11% uptick in drunk driving fatalities costing taxpayers an annual $1.47 Billion. The number of drug overdose deaths in Georgia, the majority of which are due to prescription drug abuse, has tripled since 1999. Street heroine has remained steadily available in Georgia through The Port of Savannah, which has long been a target of traffickers from outside the US.
"Bringing the Start Fresh Program to this highly populated metropolitan area will positively impact many families in the Southeast while creating a broader revenue stream for BioCorRx, Inc. The Start Fresh brand has gained significant momentum in recent months, and this distribution agreement fits in nicely with our expansion plans across the US. Atlanta is a major US hub making it more convenient for people that want access to our program in that heavily populated region of the country," says Emry.
