Crisis Stabilization Unit and Detox Facility
The original commission Burt Hill/Pollock Krieg designed for New Horizons was a 37,000-square-foot facility that provided emergency psychiatric treatment for up to 30 adults and 10 children in a nonthreatening environment. The project appears residential rather than institutional, but still provides the security required for a psychiatric environment. The adjacent 7,000-square-foot detox facility provides rehabilitation space for up to 20 adult inpatients. Both buildings feature durable interior finishes and furnishings, outdoor space and indirect lighting in patient rooms. Burt Hill was called back to renovate the children’s wing into an adult short-term residential treatment unit.

Children's Crisis Unit
A renewed need for children’s psychiatric service led to the design and construction of a standalone children’s CSU. The 14,000-square-foot building contains spaces for 20 inpatients, but is expandable to 30. Like all New Horizons facilities, it has a nonthreatening residential appearance. Interior finishes feature murals and bright colors designed with children as the end user. Recently, Burt Hill has been engaged to design a 6,000-square-foot outpatient addition to this building.

Administration Building
Expanding outpatient programs and the desire to consolidate staff drove the need for this facility. The 9,000-square-foot building is designed to be expanded on the north side. It houses the organization’s administration, operations, human resources and IT departments. Constructed on their main campus it retains the residential flavor of the existing buildings.
