Transitions, Inc. kicks off Project 180 Capital Campaign for new Residential Treatment Center
Transitions, Inc., a behavioral health service organization, has announced the official kickoff for its Project 180 Capital Campaign to renovate the former Pleasure Isle Sports Complex located at 313 Madison Pike in Erlanger into a new 180-bed Residential Treatment Center (RTC). The RTC will provide 24 detox beds, 70 residential treatment beds for men and 86 residential treatment beds for women.
This initiative, named Project 180, will increase residential treatment capacity in Northern Kentucky by providing 180 beds and will offer treatment on demand – admitting individuals within 180 minutes, to help individuals turn their lives around 180 degrees.
”When completed, the new Residential Treatment Center will be one of the leading facilities of its kind in the nation,” said Jim Beiting, Transitions CEO. "The campaign to bring this important new resource to our community is the largest ever endeavored by Transitions and one we are confident the entire region will rally behind.”
Approaching its 50th Anniversary, Transitions is uniquely equipped to address the heroin epidemic as well as other substance use disorders. Transitions opened the first non-medical residential treatment program in Greater Cincinnati in 1970 and the first non-medical detox unit in Northern Kentucky in 1975. In 1992, Transitions was recognized as the first residential treatment program in Kentucky for women accompanied by children.
Transitions is a behavioral health service organization, accredited by the Commission Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, and all treatment locations are licensed by the State of Kentucky as Alcohol and Other Drug Entities. Services include detox, residential treatment for men and women and intensive outpatient. To assist in recovery, Transitions also offers comprehensive support services including Targeted Case Management, Certified Peer Support, Mental Health Therapy, Vocational Rehabilitation and Sober Living.
The RTC is part of Transitions’ strategic response to the heroin epidemic as well as other Substance Use Disorders. It is made possible as a result of the initial support and generosity of the Kenton County Fiscal Court. EGC Construction will design and renovate the facility. Partial financing has been approved by Forcht Bank. Approximately $1.2 million toward the estimated $5.3 million cost of the project has been raised to date.
