Fred Brown Recovery Services, a 12-step addiction recovery program established in 1983, has been helping men and women with substance use disorder for decades. Located in San Pedro, California, FBRS believes that everyone has their own special needs for recovery and offers customized and flexible treatment plans.

This non-profit organization offers both group and individual therapies to explore the client’s autobiography. Fred Brown takes a holistic approach, providing residents with a healthy combination of counseling, education, nutrition, recreation, and more.

Exym EHR software solution’s customers dedicate themselves to meaningful work, and Fred Brown Recovery Services is no exception. Philip Vasquez, Outpatient Services Program Manager, took some time to answer a few of our questions so we could help spread the word about FBRS!

Philip works closely with clinical directors, counselors, and case managers to deliver the best service to their patients. His work includes assisting with clinical and administrative supervision of staff, training, and developing his team to use Exym EHR software in order to document their services efficiently and accurately.

“The most rewarding part of my job is to see clients come in and watch them evolve and grow before my eyes,” Philip shares, “I see people get the light back in their eyes and learn how to develop a new lifestyle that is both rewarding and healthy.”

One feature that makes Fred Brown so special is that they offer weekly Alumni meetings to bring past and current patients together, ensuring everyone has a lifelong community.

Exym is grateful to work with so many incredible organizations truly making a difference and positively changing many lives. We were thrilled to hear this feedback from Philip:

Exym has helped our staff work in an accurate and efficient way to document services, complete a billing process, and move to a more sustainable client chart in our clinics. Counselors can document services faster and with reliable ease of technology that is quick and easy to understand from the user’s perspective. Our staff managers have had the opportunity to refine their reporting tools so they can be more informative and easily understood to increase compliance and completion in Exym. Working with Exym’s Stephanie Jenkins has been a joy for our agency to learn the system, edit activities and seek consultation about how to best use the tools within Exym. Our agency is looking forward to a more centralized system of health records management and ease in our billing processes because of Exym systems.

All Fred Brown Recovery Services facilities are licensed and certified by the California Department of Health Care Services and regulated by the County of Los Angeles, Department of Public Health, Substance Abuse Prevention and Control. This organization is also in-network with major health maintenance organizations such as CIGNA, Beacon Health, Blue Cross, Anthem, HealthNet, and LA Care, and works with most major PPO insurances.
