Grand Opening to feature Rosecrance on Moreland: a “Center for Recovery”

ROCKFORD – Rosecrance will host a public Grand Opening at Rosecrance on Moreland (2302 Moreland Boulevard) in Champaign-Urbana on January 9, 2019 from 4:00 – 6:00 pm. A ribbon cutting will take place at 4:30 with and remarks by Rosecrance staff and community leaders will follow at 5:00 pm.

The open house will showcase the new facility, which will serve as a Center for Recovery by providing integrated services for young adults and adults seeking treatment for substance use disorders. Additionally, the event will include tours of the facility and remarks from Rosecrance and community leaders.

Work to complete Rosecrance on Moreland in Champaign-Urbana has been underway for several months. As the facility gets ready to open it’s easy to imagine the healing and recovery that will take place inside its walls, says Chris Gleason, Executive Director of Rosecrance Central Illinois.

Gleason adds, “We are very excited to share our vision with community members and highlight this new center that will help adults gain traction toward a brighter, more successful future. Rosecrance has been at the heart of the treatment movement for decades, and knows that a compassionate, experienced and caring staff and high quality facility that provides an environment of dignity and respect can make a world of difference.”

Rosecrance served over 6,000 people last year through its substance abuse and mental health programs in central Illinois, and this new facility will further expand that reach. With adult residential and outpatient treatment, and structured supportive recovery living and activities to engage alumni and the recovery community, Rosecrance on Moreland will be a true “Center for Recovery” that provides a healing and nurturing environment to young adults and adults from the community and the university who are struggling with addiction.

“The new Center for Recovery will allow Rosecrance to do some important things in the community to improve the quality of residential substance abuse services and to offer something we could not offer before. Broadening the scope of services has been, and continues to be the goal. Rosecrance on Moreland will allow us to do that: broaden the continuum of care,” says Barry Ackerson, professor emeritus, former associate dean in the School of Social Work at the University of Illinois and chair of the Rosecrance Central Illinois Advisory Board.

The Rosecrance Foundation is spearheading a fundraising campaign to support the new facility, having secured gifts toward the $1 million campaign in support of the $7 million project. A generous gift from The Prairie Behavioral Health Foundation was the first gift of the campaign.
