Mountainside Treatment Center is moving forward with the construction of a dedicated, state-of-the-art Medical Detox, a major expansion of client care services and new admission and administration offices.
According to Martin Fedor, Chief Operating Officer, this is the next step in Mountainside's growth plan and will enhance its ability to meet the growing demand from clients throughout the Northeast and nationwide. It will further expand Mountainside's widely acclaimed residential treatment program to include primary treatment and a first class detox while also strengthening its renowned Integrated Care Model.
"This project is all about our clients, staff and our mission of providing first class clinical care. A primary factor in the decision to proceed with the project is our sense of responsibility and conviction to ensure that we meet the current and projected demands for a full continuum of high quality behavioral healthcare services that the clients have come to expect from Mountainside" said CEO Terence Dougherty.
The new facilities will transform the landscape of the current Mountainside campus by adding a total of approximately 32,000 square feet.
The new 16-bed medical detox building will be complete with first class finishes and is expected to be completed and ready for occupancy in 2012, while the entire project is expected to be completed by the end of 2012. Total project costs are currently estimated to be more than $10 million.
This major expansion is the second phase of Mountainside's growth plan and follows several recent capital projects throughout Mountainside including more than $2.5 million in renovations at its facility and expansion of its treatment services.
