RHC welcomes new Substance Abuse Counselor, Walter Patton.

This September, for Alcohol & Drug Addiction Recovery month, the RRH Rural Health Clinic is proud to have welcomed on board our new Substance Abuse Counselor, Walter Patton.

“Here at Ridgecrest Regional Hospital, we understand not just the physical stress of our current health and social issues. We also understand the mental and psychological problems of having a limited social life. We know it sometimes seems like a good idea to just go to that place where you can feel numb. We also understand that the feelings come back and we get stuck. That’s why we are here for you. Ridgecrest Regional Hospital is that safe place where you can find your truth.” ~ Walter Patton
