    Ecker, Renz complete merger

    The Ecker Center for Mental Health and Renz Addiction Counseling Center have finalized a complete merger as of July 1, becoming one organization, Ecker Center for Behavioral Health.

    The Renz office at 2 American Way in Elgin will continue to provide its current services. Additional substance use treatment will be offered at the main location, 1845 Grandstand Place, in the near future.

    “We are excited that our combined organization will be able to provide more accessible and comprehensive health care services for our clients,” said CEO Dr. Daphne Sandouka.

    “The merger will offer opportunities for Ecker Center for Behavioral Health to grow as an organization and increase its positive impact on the communities it serves. I look forward to our future as we continue to lead individuals to a healthier life.”
