Kid’s Escaping Drugs Campus

Phase I: Renaissance House -
The intent of Alcohol and Drug Dependency Services, Inc. (formerly Alcoholism Services of Erie County) was to construct an adolescent residential treatment facility on a ten acre site adjacent to the Buffalo River. As part of the overall multi-phased vision, this unique facility provides 30 beds for the in-house treatment of adolescents suffering from alcohol and drug dependency. The project is partially located within a flood plain and is subject to two utility easements. The flood plain pushed the usable area of the site to the southeast, which was divided into two parcels by a water line easement. This combination of the site characteristics strongly influenced the resulting design. The design is composed of two buildings, one with a gymnasium and academic classroom, the other with the residence, administration, and art therapy room. A one-story scheme provides ease of communication and supervision. Standard residential/light commercial construction was used to provide both efficiency and economy of construction.

Phase II: Stepping Stones
After Care Program - After acquiring an adjacent four acres of property, a 16-bed boy and girl community residence was constructed to provide a facility which would house young men and women in continuing program in preparation for independent.

Phase III: Community Residence & Resource Center
Completed in the spring of 2002, these additions to Renaissance Campus consist of a new 7000 S.F. 16-bed boys Community Residence and a Resource Center of 4000 S.F.
