The Valley Cities Recovery Place – Seattle, at Beacon Hill will offer much needed access to inpatient care for people in need of substance use detoxification, treatment, and recovery services. Every day, countless people living with substance abuse disorders in Seattle wait for treatment.
By acquiring and renovating this former Recovery Centers of King County building, Valley Cities will make significant progress toward resolving a severe lack of available beds in our county. The services at this facility will provide a much needed option for families, police and first responders. This facility is an important addition to the continuum of services provided by Valley Cities Behavioral Health Care.
Scheduled to open in the fall of 2016, the facility will feature residential beds, patient examination rooms, group therapy rooms, nurse medical stations, a pharmacy, and special amenities for patients, including a dining room, lounge/TV room, and laundry.
The facility, purchased for $4 million, has the proper permitting and zoning to operate as a mental health treatment facility but requires an estimated $5 million in improvements to meet the state’s licensure and certification requirements.
The site is located in the Beacon Hill neighborhood of Seattle at 1701 18th Avenue South with easy access to I-5 and I-90E. The property is on .92 acres with a building of 33,332 square feet. It will begin operations with 16 beds for residential treatment and 16 beds in a secure detoxification unit where patients may be treated for up to 30 days. It will expand to a total of 72 beds when fully operational, serving approximately 750 people during the first year of operation, growing to more than 1,500 annually.
