The Ridge Recovery Center
Taking advantage of this beautiful and vast mountaintop landscape, MBH has transformed this former Retreat into a Holistic healing center focusing on those who have chosen the difficult path to recovery. Vistas and connections to the exterior provides an abundance of natural light to the interior environment including resident rooms, common areas and a centrally located clerestory space that serves as a multi-purpose room for residents to congregate and partake in daily activities. Residents will also have the opportunity be one with nature as they stroll along meandering tree lined paths and stop for moments of self-reflection at one of the many natural niches scattered throughout the roughly 60 acres that make up the property.
The Ridge Recovery Center opened its doors in late 2023 as a center for recovery, rehabilitation, and holistic health. The beautiful 60-acre site upon which the Ridge rests has a long history as a place for spiritual health and healing, as it was previously home to a religious retreat. While The Ridge is not a religious facility and welcomes people of all faiths and beliefs, some historic icons and artwork remain on site as comforting symbols of hope and healing and to honor the longstanding history and purpose of the property. The Ridge provides a perfect place for a peaceful and personal connection with the surrounding environment enhancing the mind, body & spirit.
MBH Architecture is extremely proud to have played such an integral part of this amazing project. Knowing that this facility will be able to provide the necessary help to people with substance abuse issues, in and outside the State of CT, enforces our purpose and dedication as healthcare architects.
