King of Prussia’s Recovery Centers of America has opened its second addiction treatment facility, with five more expected to be ready by the end of next year, writes John George for Philadelphia Business Journal.
The addiction treatment facility operator was formed last year by real estate developer Brian O’Neill. He has spent $13.7 million on the new facility on the eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay at the palatial estate previously known as Bracebridge Hall. The center currently has 40 patient beds, with plans to add 120 more.
RCA has converted the former MBNA retreat site into treatment facility that specializes in care for patients with addictions to heroin, opioids, alcohol, and prescriptions drugs. Dr. Barbara Kistenmacher, a former executive director of Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation’s New York campus, will serve as the facility’s CEO.
“It’s a spectacular 40,000-square-foot, red brick Georgian mansion on 550 acres,” said O’Neill. “It has its own ballroom and a large dining room — the only other dining room like it is the one at the White House.”
