Two substance abuse treatment centers to be administered by Preferred Family Healthcare are underway in south St. Louis. The first, for adolescents, will be constructed on a vacant lot on Gravois just west of Grand (3634 Gravois) in the Tower Grove South neighborhood. The second, for adults, is currently under construction at 4066 Dunnica in the Dutchtown neighborhood.

See more information on the two centers from a Press Release dated November 1, 2013:

The Dunnica Ave. adult facilities will be a 24,000-square-foot building situated on 1.15 acres, featuring 16 residential beds, 12 offices, 2 nurse’s stations, doctor’s office, community/recreation rooms and enclosed courtyard area. Construction will be headed up by T.S. Banze, and costs are estimated at $5.8 million. The building should be completed by September 2014. Once the facilities open, it expects to treat approximately 900 consumers annually.

The Gravois Ave. adolescent facilities will be a 24,000-square-foot building situated on 1.5 acres, with many of the same amenities as the Dunnica Ave. location, with the addition of a family visitation area. Construction will be headed up by RC Excavating, and costs are estimated at $5.6 million. The building should be completed by June 2015. Once open, the adolescent facilities will treat approximately 120 consumers annually.

    I think the Dunnica site may be opening soon but there seems to be some kind of setback on the Gravois youth treatment center. Personally, I envision mixed-use mid-rises in that slate of vacant parcels but these kinds of facilities are needed.

    This will be great for treatment and with the Affordable Healthcare Act now in affect, we probably will be seeing more facilities popping up all over the place.
