After 43 years in one location in Eugene, Oregon, Serenity Lane is poised to move in to their brand new residential campus in Coburg, Oregon. For those of you who may be unfamiliar with Serenity Lane , we are a private, nonprofit, treatment center for alcohol and other drug dependencies.
Addiction knows no boundaries, and national statistics show a staggering increase in the number of individuals and families who struggle to overcome its grip. There has never been a greater need for treatment facilities that offer hope, effective therapies and positive outcomes. Serenity Lane has stepped forward to help.
Over the past several years, Serenity Lane acquired a 15 acre parcel of rural property just 8 miles north of Eugene, and plans were drawn up to build a state-of-the-art residential facility. With a combination of generous donations, financial investment from Serenity Lane and bank financing the funds were secured to proceed. Since ground breaking in September 2014, building has been underway. Initially it will double our current occupancy to accommodate 120 residential patients and infrastructure has been laid for future expansion.
The new campus comprises 11 buildings which include a licensed, specialty hospital for 20 patients, administration offices, onsite kitchens with large dining areas, a lecture hall, a fitness center, separate group therapy facilities with adjacent counseling offices, a vast family center and 5 residential living structures, each accommodating 20 + patients. While the new campus is indeed impressive, we have no plans to increase treatment costs making it affordable for even more individuals who need help.
The official ribbon cutting is scheduled for Friday, March 11, 2016 at 10:30am. This is a public event and all are welcome. The campus will be open for tours on that day until 2:30pm then again on Saturday, March 12 from 10:30am – 2:30pm. After that date, the campus will be inhabited by patients and closed to the public.
