Texas Health Resources plans to construct a $37 million, 80-bed treatment center for drug and alcohol addiction in Mansfield — the first facility of its type for the health system.

Health system leaders will break ground at 9 a.m. Wednesday on Texas Health Residential Treatment Center at 240 North Miller Road in Mansfield.

The facility is slated to open in May 2017. It’s the first stand-alone, long-term addiction treatment center for Arlington-based Texas Health.

The facility will offer long-term treatment for adults and adolescents with addiction treatment services centered on a wellness approach, according to a news release from Texas Health. Services will range from massage, a fitness center, indoor basketball court, yoga studio and a movie theater.

Texas Health Residential Treatment Center also will offer limo service to and from Dallas Fort Worth International Airport for out-of-town clients.

“We will help clients achieve sobriety through working their 12 steps, but we will do so with wellness at the center of their stay so patients can get better – mind, body and spirit,” Ramona Osburn, senior vice president of Behavioral Health Services for Texas Health Resources, said in a statement. “We feel this will allow our clients to really focus on recovery.”

The 100,000-square-foot center will have four residence halls, divided by age groups: adolescents from 12-17 years old; young adults from 18-25; women; and general population of 25 and older.

Beck will complete the architecture and the construction for the project.

Osburn said the facility will fill a gap in treatment facilities in North Texas.

“Of all the major diseases, drug and alcohol addiction adds more to the cost of health care than any other,” Osburn said. “This is a chance to give these clients a real shot at achieving sobriety. By taking them out of their everyday lives, surrounding them with wellness and working through issues, we can bring them back to recovery.”

Studies have shown the longer time patients spend in residential treatment, the better chance they have to stay sober, Osburn added.

Texas Health Residential Treatment Center’s programs will include:

  • A total wellness focus with fitness, nutrition and alternate pain management techniques
  • Daily meditation and goal-setting sessions
  • Daily 12-step meetings
  • At least five hours of daily group therapy
  • Weekly individual therapy settings
  • Weekly psychiatrist or addiction specialist visits
  • Gym workouts, yoga sessions, and Tai Chi classes throughout the week to help cleanse and detoxify the body from the residual effects of drug and alcohol abuse
  • Massage services weekly
  • Swimming pool
