Sixty-four new treatment beds opened up at the Pennington County Care Campus today, as the final phase of work on the campus’ second floor was completed earlier this week. According to KEVN Black Hills Fox, the 64 beds are to be divided evenly between male and female patients, and rooms are set up with four beds and two desks apiece.
The Care Campus’ goal is to “assist individuals and/or families in improving their quality of life through individualized and client‑/family‑driven treatment planning based on their identified strengths, problems, and needs”. They hope to assist in recovery from addiction and/or substance abuse, facilitate growth in patient and family relationships, and to offer the opportunity to experience wellness and fullness through sobriety.
The facility plans to work with the courts and law enforcement to identify good candidates for the Care Campus program and may potentially partner with the One Heart Campus as well once it is completed, as it is located nearby.
