Care is provided in a facility that is specifically designed to emphasize residential character. The facility can accommodate 30 standard care residents and an additional 12 individuals in the Detoxification unit. In addition to administrative offices, counselling offices and group therapy rooms, the building offers a wide variety of amenities. These include the Lobby, Library, Meditation Room, Exercise Room, Resident Laundry and Community Rooms. Meals are prepared in a commercial kitchen and served in a 2,200 SF Dining Room that also doubles as a large Meeting Room.
The site development provides expansive views of the Mylan Park surroundings and includes covered porches, walking trails and landscaping. The architectural style of the building features forms and materials that reflect the feel of a mountain lodge.
