Los Angeles, Sept. 17, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioCorRx, Inc. (BICX), a leader in addiction treatment, announces a 111% increase in patients being treated with its Start Fresh Program since July 2014 by independent clinics. The Company believes the increase is due to significant national expansion and branding efforts over the course of the year to date. In 2014 BioCorRx, Inc. secured license agreements for ten additional states and direct distribution deals with clinics in two other states owned by Dr. George Fallieras. Currently, there are nine clinics open serving patients using the Start Fresh Program, compared to just one operating clinic this time last year. By year-end, at least three new clinics should be opening according to information provided to the company by licensees and Dr. Fallieras. "We are pleased to see an increase of this magnitude, this is not only impactful for the financials of BioCorRx, Inc. but also for the families receiving the effective help they need to get them on the road to recovery" stated CEO Kent Emry.
News of the increase in patients seeking the Start Fresh Program comes at a poignant time as this September marks the 25th annual National Recovery Month by Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). The focus of Recovery Month is to positively promote prevention, treatment and recovery of mental and substance use disorders. "BioCorRx, Inc. is proud to be an integral part of the community assisting families with recovery from addiction. We agree wholeheartedly with SAMHSA's stance that treatment is effective and people do recover" says Emry.
