Be Well Orange Campus
This 59,420 s.f. three-story project offers a new kind of care for behavioral health services in Orange County, providing community and client social support services via education, rehabilitation, medication counseling, and case management. The facility will be owned by a public/private partnership between the county, area hospital systems, and a community-based health care program. The new building will support both an adult and adolescent crisis stabilization unit, sober detox unit, residential behavioral health, and social/wellness services.
The sober detox unit accommodates 12-beds and will take in guests that need of a safe place to detox in an outpatient setting and not a residential unit. The crisis stabilization unit operates similarly to the sober detox unit as an outpatient program where guests can stay up to 23 hours at their will. There are two crisis stabilization units, an adult unit that supports sixteen guests and an adolescent unit that supports eight guests. While at the crisis stabilization unit, guests receive immediate access to treatment, medication, and therapy to assist with stabilizing their mental crisis condition. Guests are connected to social services and potentially admitted into a residential program after their admittance to the crisis stabilization unit.
This facility has four units of residential program: withdrawal management, substance use residential, crisis residential, and co-occurring disorders residential. The residential units support shared resident rooms, living areas, support spaces for staff, spaces for group therapy and consult rooms for one-on-one therapy sessions. Connectivity to outdoor spaces is important to these programs and the residential units are provided exterior access to a patio or roof garden.
