Texas Health breaking ground for its first stand-alone addiction treatment center

🕐 2 min read

Texas Health Resources breaks ground on Wednesday on a $37 million Texas Health Residential Treatment Center, an 80-bed facility located at 240 North Miller Road in Mansfield.

The new treatment center is set to open in May 2017, the first stand-alone, long-term addiction treatment center for the Arlington-based health care company.

This is the first stand-alone, long-term addiction treatment center for Texas Health. Ramona Osburn, senior vice president of Behavioral Health Services for Texas Health said it will fill a gap in treatment facilities in North Texas.

“Of all the major diseases, drug and alcohol addiction adds more to the cost of health care than any other,” Osburn said. “This is a chance to give these clients a real shot at achieving sobriety. By taking them out of their everyday lives, surrounding them with wellness and working through issues, we can bring them back to recovery. Studies have shown the longer time they spend in treatment, the better shot they have at remaining sober.”

The facility will provide long-term treatment for adults and adolescents with addiction treatment services focused on a wellness approach. Services will range from massage, a fitness center, indoor basketball court, yoga studio, and a movie theater.

Texas Health Residential Treatment Center also will offer limo service to and from Dallas Fort Worth Airport for out-of-town clients.

“We will help clients achieve sobriety through working their 12 steps, but we will do so with wellness at the center of their stay so patients can get better – mind, body and spirit,” said Ramona Osburn, senior vice president of Behavioral Health Services for Texas Health Resources in a news release. “We feel this will allow our clients to really focus on recovery.”

The 100,000-square-foot facility will have four residence halls, divided by age groups: adolescents from 12-17 years old; young adults from 18-25; women; and general population of 25 and older.
