Riverside University Health System: Arlington Recovery Community

The ARC sits on approximately 10 acres of a 48-acre county-owned parcel of land. It is a community-based program that assists in the prevention of incarceration with the intent to break the cycle of recidivism.

As part of the RUHS Behavioral Health Campus, WD designed a 3-building Facility for its recovery programs. The two-building, 20,000 sf, 54-bed facility, provides in-patient housing and support for those requiring both mental and substance abuse treatment. Including a separate wing with critical design safety details for those experience mental health issues, the environment provides separate residence wings for men and women, flexible multi-purpose rooms and spaces, and an administrative building with additional shared activity rooms and staff support, all incorporating natural light and a soothing color palette. The third building, the Sobering Center, is a 2,600 square foot outpatient facility, designed to serve as a transitional space for client recovery, prior to their next stage of treatment. Featuring warm and welcoming finish materials in an open, multi-purpose space, infused with natural light, the multi-purpose space extends to an outdoor patio with shade cover to provide additional usable space for concurrent activities with ample support spaces for flexible activities.
