Spectrum held a “topping off” ceremony Friday, September 5, 2014, as the main steel beam was hoisted into place on its new 100-bed residential substance abuse treatment facility in Westborough, Massachusetts. Spectrum patients and employees signed the beam before a crane lifted it to its symbolic position at the center of the structure.

“It is exciting to see such progress being made to provide much needed treatment beds in a brand-new, state-of-the-art facility,” said Spectrum President & CEO Chuck Faris at the event.

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 building, located on Spectrum’s 25-acre treatment campus in Westborough, is set to open next summer.
