Staff Report – Columbia Regional Business Journal

The Lexington Richland Alcohol and Drug Abuse Council broke ground Tuesday on its new $12.2 million 60,000-square-foot behavior health center.

The new facility is being built on Colonial Drive near Baptist Richland Hospital and will combine services and staff from three different offices throughout Richland County.

“The new Richland County facility will allow us to continue providing the same high-quality, accredited services that this community has come to expect from LRADAC, but within a new atmosphere and structure that will improve how we protect the confidentiality and meet the unique treatment needs of each of our clients,” said President and CEO Debbie Francis.

The multilevel facility will include a detoxification unit, administrative offices and a 125-seat training room, which will be available for rent by community groups. The center is seeking Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification for the facility.

“We’ve specifically designed this building to allow for separate and distinct areas for the varied client populations that we serve through counseling groups, community groups and other agency programs,” said Leslie Hipp, the center’s vice president of treatment services.
