Construction is underway at Comprehensive's new residential treatment facility in Walla Walla county! The 16-bed adult residential treatment facility is now framed up at 1250 Commercial Drive in College Place, not far from our existing Comprehensive offices. The project brings to life a vision announced in 2016 for an increase in residential mental healthcare in the Walla Walla area. Services will be offered on two tracks: short-term stays of one to 14 days, and longer-term care up to 180 days.
The facility will be the home for Comprehensive's crisis outreach team, a group of behavioral health professionals providing services in the community. This includes case managers, peer counselors, nursing staff, and other staff members supporting programs in the new unit. The facility is also expected to help provide some relief to local hospital emergency rooms, working early on to stabilize patients who might otherwise seek hospitalization.
Construction is on track for completion by late Spring 2018.
