Ribbon cutting at Longleaf Recovery Center

Longleaf Recovery Center recently cut the ribbon on its newest outpatient treatment center in Madison, Alabama. With the opening of the new facility, Longleaf will be able to accommodate approximately 55 clients and provide an array of outpatient treatment options and substance abuse recovery resources for the community.

“Don’t we wish a facility like this in any community like this wasn’t needed? But the bottom line is, in every community, it is critical you have facilities like this,” said Madison Mayor Paul Finley. “It doesn’t matter whether you’re in Huntsville, Madison or Madison County, this facility will make a positive impact for our community.”

The recovery center provides multiple levels of care, including five-day and three-day outpatient programs, a partial hospitalization program that operates on weekdays and programs available after regular business hours. Additionally, Longleaf provides medication management, family support groups and treatment consultations. As an outpatient center, patients can receive treatment while continuing with their daily lives.

Goodwyn Mills Cawood (GMC) served as the architect, interior designer and landscape architect for the 7,000-square-foot facility located near Toyota Field. Guided by the inspiration package created by project developer LIV Ventures, the interior was designed to take on a more residential ambiance to help visitors feel more comfortable and at home, as opposed to feeling like they are in a healthcare facility.

Longleaf, a partnership between Birmingham Recovery Center, LIV Ventures and EBSCO Industries, is inspired by the longleaf pine, which is transformed and made more resilient by fire. Longleaf takes this mindset with its clients, helping them become more resilient, while elevating standards of care through their people and practices and empowering their patients to change and heal.

Longleaf Recovery Center has facilities across Alabama, including two campuses in Birmingham and one under construction in Baldwin County. GMC helped with the furniture package for the Longleaf Wellness Center in Birmingham and is serving as the architect and interior designer for the Baldwin County location, slated to open later this summer.

Other project partners include Hyde Engineering, Structural Design Group, Inc. and MW/Davis Dumas & Associates, Inc.
