(SHEBOYGAN, WIS) Rogers Behavioral Health gained approval to break ground in late spring on a new treatment location at 1108 S. Wildwood Ave. in Sheboygan.
Expected to open in late 2020 or early 2021, the $4 million project will provide mental health services for adults and adolescents and was made possible by a donor, who would like to remain anonymous.
“With this latest expansion in Sheboygan, we will be able to make our specialized behavioral health services and our first-ever supportive living environment accessible to more people in need of mental health and addiction treatment,” says Pat Hammer, CEO and president of Rogers Behavioral Health.
“We are grateful for philanthropic support that allows us to address increased demand for effective treatment, and we look forward to partnering with the community to support the needs of the Sheboygan area,” Matthias Schueth, executive vice president, Rogers Behavioral Health Foundation.
Rogers’ Sheboygan location will include a 10,000 square foot outpatient clinic to treat OCD, anxiety, depression, other mood disorders, and co-occurring substance use in adults and adolescents ages 12-17. The clinic will have the ability to serve up to 12 adolescents and 28 adults at a time.
There will also be separate space adjacent to the clinic dedicated to providing Rogers’ first supportive living services for up to 12 adult patients at a time. The living space will give patients a place to call home during treatment as they also prepare to move back into everyday life. This environment supports recovery through shared experience and builds strength and hope with staff available for coaching and mentoring. The space will feature a common living room, dining room, kitchen, and shared bedrooms with kitchenettes and bathrooms.
Following a public hearing on January 21, Sheboygan officials gave approval for the three-acre Wildwood Ave. location to be rezoned from urban industrial to suburban office as a first step in the process. Rogers is now working with Planning Commission staff on approval of the site plan and architectural drawings.
