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.
