Region Ten breaks ground for Women’s Treatment Center

Region Ten Community Services Board is pleased to announced that ground has been broken for construction of the new Women’s Treatment Center, and is releasing this informational video to help the community learn more about this important project.

 

 

Beginning in 2015 with the Nehemiah Action gathering, Region Ten committed to IMPACT (Interfaith Movement Promoting Action by Congregations Together) to work with the city of Charlottesville and the county of Albemarle to develop a three year plan for the creation of a local women’s residential treatment center. 

Two years later, the ground has been cleared and site work has begun. By the end of June construction will start and we can look forward to a fall opening.  The treatment center will include room for 8 adult female residents and up to 2 preschool children for each resident. The program will focus on co-occurring mental health and substance use disorder treatment with a special emphasis on trauma-related issues.

Services will include individual and group counseling, Medication Assisted Therapy (MAT), nutritional counseling, stress reduction, and wellness approaches such as yoga, structured physical activities, acupuncture and neuro-feedback. Women and their children will be provided with a safe home to begin their recovery journey. 

 Region Ten continues to thank our donors and the local community advocates for their dedication to addressing the problems of substance abuse in our community and specifically the lack of residential treatment for women.   The Charlottesville/Albemarle community has responded to the challenge and met our initial capital campaign goal of $1,000,000 towards the construction of the facility.

Phase II has begun to assist with raising additional funds for the costs of site work, furnishings and landscaping. 

Region Ten appreciates the local support for this project and looks forward  with anticipation as this much needed service comes closer to opening.
