Tour Series: ADAMH Crisis Care Center


This tour is now sold out. Contact [email protected] if you have any questions.

Each year, 21% of Franklin County’s 1.3 million residents will experience mental illness, while demand for mental health and addiction services is expected to increase by 23% over the next 10 years.

To address this critical need in our community, the Alcohol, Drug, and Mental Health Board of Franklin County (ADAMH) partnered with Franklin County Public Facilities Management to build the Franklin County Crisis Care Center. Located in Franklinton with an expected opening of 2025, the $60 million facility will be a central destination for adults in mental health and/or addiction crisis who need facility-based crisis stabilization services.

Once completed, facility operator RI International will integrate peer support into all levels of care including an urgent care clinic, 23-hour observation, and inpatient services. The 72,000 SF facility will feature 60 observation positions and 16 inpatient beds. The ‘no-wrong-door’ design strategies aim to provide an environment of care that is safe, welcoming, recovery-oriented, and is as non-restrictive as possible.

This construction tour will give attendees an opportunity to view the different levels of care to be offered.  Attendees will also learn how the behavioral health programming influenced the design of the project.

NBBJ led architectural, interior, and landscape design. Behavioral Health programming and planning was led by architecture+. IMEG and Korda are the design engineers.

Hard hat and closed-toe shoes are required for all attendees.

If you want to learn more, NBBJ will be discussing this project at the January AAH Meeting on January 26.
