The Refuge – A Healing Place opens new CPPI-built detoxification facility

December 4, 2018

Ocklawaha, Fla. – Acadia Healthcare’s The Refuge – A Healing Place celebrated the grand opening of its new medical detoxification building with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, November 30th on their Ocklawaha campus. The 10,778 square foot detox building will serve drug and alcohol addiction and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) patients.

The Refuge’s new facility houses four doctors’ offices, two counseling offices, two exam rooms, one lab room, one massage room, one quiet room, one noisy activity room, six patient rooms, a staff break room, a nurses station, and three medical dispensing counters with a waiting area.

The new space allows The Refuge to house patients while they are undergoing detox treatment, prior to their transition to the property’s standard cabin housing. Before construction of the detox facility, detoxing patients did not have separate housing onsite.

CPPI constructed the detox facility with special considerations for trauma patients who may be experiencing emotional or psychological distress. Specialty fixtures and security screws were installed throughout all patient areas to ensure patient safety at all times. The building was constructed with structural metal framing and steel construction on a monolithic slab foundation.

The detox program at The Refuge provides safe, medically assisted detoxification from drugs or alcohol. Under medical supervision, users can detoxify in a safe, professional environment. The detoxification program’s new building will assist medical staff in helping patients through this process more efficiently and effectively.
