The Carolina Center breaks ground on 18-bed expansion project

The Carolina Center for Behavioral Health broke ground recently on an 18-bed expansion that will help meet the growing demand for behavioral health treatment in the Upstate.

“Our goal in this expansion is to improve access to treatment for those dealing with addiction and mental health issues,” said Jerry Chapman, CEO of The Carolina Center. “Fortunately, the stigma surrounding mental health is decreasing and more people are seeking treatment. This expansion will give us an even greater ability to help those in need.”

Anticipated opening of the new unit is late 2020. The expansion project also includes a larger, more accessible admissions area as well as reconfiguring dining services in order to improve the patient experience.

“The Carolina Center has been the area’s leader in behavioral services for more than 30 years,” said Chapman. “It’s an honor to work with our community partners and serve more men, women, and teens who are dealing with mental health or substance use disorders.”
