Muskingum Behavioral Health is opening its doors at a new location.

The facility has moved from the north end of Zanesville to 601 Underwood Street.  Executive director Steve Carrel said after 26 years, it was time for a change.

"At this spot, we have all the staff in the same place, we’re more centrally located – just north of the interstate, which is much closer to our clientele," said Carrel.

Carrel said Muskingum Behavioral Health will continue to provide quality care for its clients.  He said the facility is an important part of the community.

"I firmly believe that the number one health problem in America is addiction," said Carrel.  "It’s the unspoken problem, because people don’t like to talk about it."

Muskingum Behavioral Health is dedicated to helping people who are suffering from addiction.  For more information, you can call (740) 454-1266.
