Choctaw Nation Recovery Center
Scope of Work:
The Choctaw Nation Recovery Center is a new 14,242 sq. ft. facility that provides counseling and in-patient care for drug and alcohol treatment for members of the Choctaw Nation.
The building is situated in the beautiful Talihina Mountains next to the same complex that houses the Choctaw Hospital and Health Authority Building. Over the years, some of the buildings on the compound have seen a variety of uses, including a stint as housing for nuns caring for patients suffering from tuberculosis during WWII.
The exterior of the Recovery Center is comprised of brick and native stone veneer, to match the facade of the existing buildings on the complex. The Recovery Center utilizes traditional structural steel construction with steel framed roof trusses and a pre-finished standing seam roof. The brick and EIFS structure can house up to twenty (20) patients and the spacious floor plan allows for comfortable living quarters, a fully functional kitchen, exercise room, several lounge areas, cafeteria and dining facility, counseling and lecture rooms, laundry facilities, reception area, office, and storage space. Detached smoking shelters are also provided and outdoor sitting areas are situated to take advantage of the serene, wooded landscape.
