Allegany Council on
Alcoholism & Substance Abuse
A new, 7,600 s.f. two-story replacement men’s 16-bed community residence and administration space. The new facility includes a kitchen, dining room, living room, and counseling areas. The original facility was renovated to become the Main Administration for ACASA, including community residents, clinic and prevention.
It is hard to imagine a more pleasing and more pastoral site for an inpatient rehabilitation program for alcohol and drug abuse. Set on a hillside overlooking a wooded valley near the edge of town, the new 16-bed residential treatment facility takes full advantage of making the resident aware of their natural surroundings. It sits immediately adjacent to the former residential facility which it replaced, and which became the administrative offices for ACASA.
Set into the hillside, the lower level houses the counselor offices, kitchen and dining and recreation areas which open out to a walk overlooking the valley. The upper level houses the bedrooms and a lounge area for the clients.
The character of the facility is distinctly residential in feel, which promotes an environment for healing.
