The Counseling Center Complex consists of a new adult residential treatment center, an adolescent treatment center, an adult transitional living, and a multipurpose administration and outpatient building. The development includes new access roads with approximately 22,500 sq. ft. building related infrastructure with five new facilities:

  • Women’s PRT facility (approximately 4,000 square feet)
  • Adolescent PRT (approximately 6,000 square feet).

  • Outpatient Building (approximately 5,000 square feet)

$15,399,736 of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds were appropriated for the purchase and development of the property. ARPA funds were used due to behavioral health needs and public health impacts exacerbated by the pandemic.
