In 2011, operations began in the new WakeBrook Mental Health Campus, located on Sunnybrook Road near WakeMed and Holly Hill Hospitals in southeast Raleigh. This campus was conceived to address the growing mental health and addictive disorder treatment needs of our residents by developing a comprehensive continuum of care. This facility provides crisis services, secure acute medical detoxification and short-stay inpatient substance abuse treatment. These services can effectively divert admissions from more expensive and more restrictive hospitalizations, and most effectively treat the varied needs of Wake County's consumers. With local short stays, consumers can remain near family and provider support systems and will be able to re-integrate into outpatient care more quickly.
The project consists of two buildings totaling 58,846 SF located on a 19-acre site across the street from Holly Hill Hospital. A shared parking area is provided for 125 cars. The two buildings are:
Crisis Stabilization Center - two story building consisting of:
- An entry/admissions area for assessment, referral, consultation and medically supervised observation for under 24 hours on the First Floor and
- Two 16-bed units for facility based crisis and secure detoxification for 3-5 day stays sharing the second floor.
Recovery Center - two story building consisting of:
- 16-bed unit for voluntary substance abuse treatment, built to hospital standards
