Los Angeles, Sept. 2, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioCorRx, Inc. (OTCQB: BICX), a leader in addiction treatment and rehabilitation programs, announces the scheduled opening of a new location next week in Las Vegas, Nevada that will treat people using the company's Start Fresh Program. The clinic, named Start Fresh Recovery, will be owned by Dr. George Fallieras and located at 501 S. Rancho Drive, #H-50, Las Vegas, NV 89106. The new center will be marketed initially using billboards and radio in the Las Vegas market.
Nevada is a highly sought after tourist destination, seeing approximately 45 Million tourists annually. According to the most recent available data, Nevada's per capita consumption rate of alcohol ranked 4th highest in the nation. The state also ranks among the highest for illicit drug use and prescription drug abuse in all age groups, while ranking low in terms of accessibility to treatment programs. Statistically drug and alcohol abuse contribute to heightened crime rates and Nevada is no exception, having been ranked 2nd highest in the nation for violent crimes. In 2006 Nevadans ranked 1st for the state with the highest rate of hydrocodone abuse, and on average the state consumes twice as many prescription painkillers than any other state. It is not surprising given those statistics that the state ranks 3rd highest in the nation for drug overdose deaths, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Bringing the Start Fresh Program to Nevada will positively impact many local families suffering from addiction, while creating a broader revenue stream for BioCorRx, Inc. As addiction treatment options become more effective and accessible, crime rates should decrease making places like Nevada safer for residents and families.
"We are pleased that 2014 has been full of growth for the Start Fresh Program. The opening of yet another new center in a new state is great news for Nevada residents as well as for the BioCorRx revenue stream" said Kent Emry, CEO of BioCorRx, Inc. "Nevada is a hub for tourism that encourages excessive indulgence in vices. This new center will bring much hope for residents and families that are suffering as a result."
