Spectrum Health Systems broke ground on Wednesday, June 4, for construction of a new 100-bed residential substance abuse treatment facility to be built at Spectrum’s 25-acre treatment campus in Westborough, Massachusetts.

spectrum-westborough“Bringing state-of-the-art, evidence-based, high-quality services to more and more individuals and families affected by addiction, while remaining committed to our core principles which seek to provide individuals with an opportunity to attain long-term, sustainable recovery is what Spectrum consistently strives to do,” said Spectrum President & CEO Charles Faris. “This project allows us to achieve that mission, and we are very happy to be doing it in Westborough,” he added.

The new building is designed to provide a safe, supportive and welcoming environment for people seeking treatment  within an atmosphere that promotes recovery and reflects the high quality of Spectrum’s services.

The 40,000-square-foot three-story building will consist of four 25-bed stand-alone residential units, a centralized intake area, family meeting space, fitness room, outdoor courtyard, a central dining area and great room, and commercial-grade kitchen facilities.

The project is financed by an $8.5-million tax-exempt bond issued by MassDevelopment on behalf of Spectrum. Boston-based DiMella Shaffer is providing architectural services and Worcester-based Cutler Associates construction services.

Based in Worcester, Massachusetts, Spectrum Health Systems, Inc. is a private, not-for-profit substance abuse and mental health treatment provider. The organization currently treats 45,000 individuals each year through more than 125 programs in community-based settings and correctional institutions throughout Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Georgia, Tennessee, Iowa, Maine and Washington State.
