Crossroads Expands, Moves into Beautiful, New Space
October 2nd, 2011
Over the summer, the residential substance abuse clients and staff moved into a beautiful, new renovated space on the Center’s main campus. The renovations, thoughtfully designed by PK Studios and carefully constructed by Gulf Coast Construction, brought balance to nature and environmentally conscience structural design.
The most integral part of the project was to incorporate the addition of two beds bringing the total capacity to 18. Throughout the design phase, the goal was to maximize the space, while creating a soothing, comfortable therapeutic environment that improves mental health and wellbeing and reduces or eliminates environmental stressors while clients live onsite with us for an average of three to five weeks. While in our care, each person works with an expert, dedicated professional team of chemical dependency specialists to create a personalized treatment plan which includes participation in intensive, psychoeducational group therapy, individual and family counseling, 12-step groups, psychiatric services and structured recreation including meditation, swimming, basketball and walking.
This beautiful new space has been enhanced to mirror the exceptional, high-quality treatment services our clients receive. Each beautifully appointed bedroom has four beds with the exception of a new two-bed, semi-private room. Incorporated into the modernized redesign, all rooms now have a living room area with a TV and a large bathroom with neutral porcelain tile and dark maple finished cabinetry. The space includes new private treatment offices, private access to the new , all new furniture and a larger common room for dining, recreation and group. And now that we’re all moved in, we have recently partnered with one of our Foundation’s generous in-kind donors, Marla Ottenstein, Professional Organizer Florida, to put the final touches on organizing the kitchen area.
Enhancing the therapeutic environment while expanding the Crossroads program was critical to meet the increased demand for high-quality substance abuse treatment in Southwest Florida and make chemical dependency treatment more accessible to those in need. Our goal is to create a life-changing and life-lasting recovery opportunity for individuals and their loved ones and we wanted an environment that welcomed and encouraged people through that process. We hope you’ll join us for a tour this season to see firsthand the amazing work being done within this greatly enhanced space of which we are all very proud.
