New inpatient SUD center in Massachusetts

Massachusetts has a new inpatient rehabilitation facility.

Clearbrook Treatment Centers opened in Baldwinville earlier this month. The facility is located in a former school for orphans with behavioral health needs.

The renovated 35,000-square-foot building includes a detox unit, a clinical building and several residential cottages, each of which has eight single rooms. Clearbrook Massachusetts will offer dual diagnosis services for SUD and mental health disorders.

Clearbrook Treatment Centers also has an inpatient SUD treatment facility in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania.

Native American Connections opens behavioral health center

Native American Connections (NAC) has opened a new behavioral health and supportive housing campus in Phoenix, Arizona.

The organization provides behavioral health, affordable housing and community development services that are culturally appropriate for Native Americans.

NAC’s new behavioral health center, called Patina Mountain Preserve Wellness Center, will have 28 beds and treat those with SUD and behavioral health needs. The facility will incorporate Native American ceremonies and take a holistic approach to healing. 

Meanwhile, the supporting housing complex, called Dunlap Pointe Housing Community, will have 54 permanent supportive housing units, which are targeted to veterans experiencing homelessness. 

The two centers will be colocated on the same campus.

“The colocation of Dunlap Pointe with Patina Mountain Preserve offers the opportunity to end someone’s homelessness while also providing easy access to help a resident with their substance use and behavioral health needs,” Diane Yazzie Devine, CEO of NAC, said in a press release announcing the news.
