Charleston Naval Base in Residential Addiction Center Conversion PDF   E-mail
10/06/2016 -ATIN - Meridian Behavioral Health Systems, a for-profit with an eclectic mix of assets in five states, has bought a former naval information base in Charleston and is converting the 123-acre property into a specialty addiction center.

The new facility, which will have 95 beds, was bought in an auction held by the General Services Administration. Alabama-based Mellivora Capital Partners won the auction in December in 2016..

In February, Meridian Behavioral Health Systems, of which Charleston's Highland Hospital behavioral health facility is a subsidiary, announced that it had leased the base for use as a residential rehab center and planned to open in July.

The opening was pushed back to October and is now indefinite. Construction is needed to bring a base dormitory building's roof, kitchen and therapeutic areas up to regulatory standards.

The new addiction rehab is expected to employ 200 people.
