This project provides for the planning, design and construction of a replacement facility for the existing Avery Road Treatment Center (ARTC). The existing facility provides residential substance abuse treatment for low-income County residents. The County is pursuing a public-private partnership with assistance from the State to complete the project; therefore, only a portion of the likely total project costs are reflected here. The County has issued a Request for Expressions of Interest to gauge potential interest in a public private partnership. Responses from this process will inform how this project moves forward.

The existing facility provides 20 medical detox and 40 Intermediate Care Facility beds. Capacity provided by the replacement facility may shift depending on the agreement developed under the public-private partnership.


The existing ARTC facility was constructed of pre-fabricated modular units in 1991 and needs to be replaced.
