The Herrington Recovery Center is an inpatient residential treatment center for professionals with substance abuse problems. It is licensed to care for 19 patients at a time with an average stay ranging from 45 to 60 days.

The center is an addiction treatment center designed for business executives and professionals, providing a five-day evaluation for professional, intensive residential treatment, comprehensive continuing care planning, private setting and cost-effective treatment.

The Herrington Recovery Center provides a comfortable, home-like setting to support individuals during this important transition.

The new three-story, 23,000-sq-ft center replaces the existing building. Built in the 1920s as a dormitory for nurses, the facility did not reflect the premier treatment that the Herrington Recovery Center provides.

To better align the physical structure with the program, the new building includes offices, cafeteria with a full service kitchen, outdoor terrace and patios, and lounge areas.
