Herrington Recovery Center – Light-Frame Hybrid Design Leads to Healing Environment

Herrington Recovery Center – Oconomowoc, WI

When patients arrive at the Herrington Recovery Center, a residential facility for alcohol and chemical dependency treatment, their needs are pretty specific. They need privacy and confidentiality. They need to feel safe and comfortable. Mostly, however, they need what Herrington’s clinical services manager Mickey Gabbert calls a serene and spiritual environment. So when architects designed the new structure, a 21,000-square-foot, 20-bed treatment center for executives and business professionals, it was an obvious choice to use wood.
