million to restore the building to a 56-bed facility with
inpatient services for children, teens and adults. Work will
include a complete interior renovation and roof renovation,
according to the statement.
Additionally, Rogers has purchased an adjacent building at 4555

intensive outpatient services, the statement said.

each location is not determined, but will match Rogers’ current
specialties in obsessive-compulsive and anxiety disorders,
eating disorders, depression and mood disorders and addiction.
