The Recovery Centers of America held a grand opening of its newest outpatient facility in Voorhees on Friday. The new center will offer a range of therapy tracks including partial, general, and intensive outpatient programs.

Two stars of the hit A&E reality show Wahlburgers were also on hand to show their support as part of the Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation.

"As many as these places open they fill up, they're do needed so anytime we can open a facility like this it's a plus," said Bob Wahlberg.

The Recovery Centers of America operates the Lighthouse Recovery Center in Mays Landing and is the fastest growing substance abuse disorder treatment organization in the country.

"Literally we're saving lives, but it takes an entire community to be able to do that," said David Dorcshu, CEO of The Lighthouse. "That's why we want to be a part of the community and we want to make an impact."
