In August 2013, Houston Recovery Center Executive Director Leonard Kincaid introduced the services offered through the sobering center to an Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Captain. That evening, sobering center staff called EMS to transport one of our frequent clients to a medical facility. It was his 18th visit to the sobering center. The same EMS Captain Mr. Kincaid had met with that morning was staffed on the EMS truck dispatched for the client transport. She shared with staff that our client had been transported by EMS over 80 times to 7 different hospitals in the past 8 months.
