Longleaf, a partnership between Birmingham Recovery Center, LIV Ventures, and EBSCO Industries, has closed on a 2.03-acre site in the Town Madison master development for the future home of Longleaf Recovery Center – Madison. The new drug and alcohol addiction treatment program will accommodate approximately 55 clients and provide a spectrum of outpatient treatment options and substance abuse recovery resources for the Huntsville community.
According to the National Council for Mental Wellbeing, 43% of U.S. adults who needed substance use care in the past 12 months did not receive it due to cost, availability, wait times, a lack of diversity and proximity to care. Longleaf’s mission is to break down these barriers to treatment.
“There is a critical need to make substance use disorder treatment more accessible to Alabamians battling addiction,” said Robb Crumpton, LIV’s chief executive officer. “We are proud to play a role in bringing additional resources to Huntsville through this development.”
LIV Ventures will be responsible for the development of Longleaf Recovery Center – Madison, as well as other facilities throughout the state. In September 2022, the organization broke ground on a primary mental health facility in Hoover and plans to strategically expand in the coming months.
Construction on Longleaf Recovery Center – Madison’s 7,000 square-foot facility is anticipated to be completed by Summer 2024.
