Addiction Treatment Industry Newswire
11/01/2018 -ATIN- In one of the biggest projects in contemporary addiction treatment industry history, Northwell Health, a Long Island med surg, in a partnership with New York real estate developer Engel Burman are building a big addiction treatment and research facility in the town of Riverhead on Long Island.

To be called Wellbridge, the new $90M center will sit on 40 acres in the Calverton Research Park, and have 80 beds, along with an addiction research program. Groundbreaking was held this morning.

The partnership between Engel Burman, active in the New York tri-state real estate market, and Northwell Health, a huge non-profit with 20 med surg hospitals, is a unique collaboration that will last long after construction is completed late next year. Engel Burman will remain as an operating partner, managing all non-clinical operations at Wellbridge.

Currently Engel Burman is conducting a nationwide search for an executive director to head up the new Wellbridge center.

"Wellbridge will serve as a learning laboratory that provides traditional and alternative treatments, giving addiction specialists and researchers the ability to assess the short- and long-term progress of clients, identify clues to improve therapies and prevent relapse, and study the neurobiological effects of addiction through brain imaging and other neuroscience investigational methods," according to a press release announcing the ground breaking.
