This property will be a peaceful, healing retreat.
This building is situated on wooded land, out of sight from the street, in a residential neighborhood, less than a half mile from the center of Lenox.
Attractive to Residents and Their Families
The Berkshires, with its abundant amenities, is a very attractive place to stay for families during the residency of their loved one. For more than a century, the Berkshires have been widely known as one of the country’s premier drive to vacation destinations, cherished by affluent residents of the greater Boston and greater New York areas for the abundant arts, diverse recreational activities, and world class wellness institutions present in the Berkshires.
Attractive to Staff
Not only will the Berkshire location be attractive to potential residents, and their families who will come to visit and support the healing of their loved one, the area will enable the treatment provider to attract and retain the very best professionals who will enjoy doing their important work in a beautiful setting, while living in an area with strong schools, affordable quality housing, modest cost of living, and truly spectacular amenities.
One of the many strengths of the Berkshire Hills project is that the treatment center is located in the Berkshires, which has a plethora of high quality residential programs providing change guidance to various populations. Within twenty miles of this property are well-respected, nationally recognized intuitions such as Austen Riggs (psychiatric), Center for Motivational Change (substance abuse), Kripalu (center for yoga and health), Canyon Ranch (wellness resort), and Gould Farm (psychiatric). And, within the same twenty mile radius, there are reputable local stalwarts such as the Brien Center (substance abuse), Hillcrest Educational (developmental disabilities and The Meadows (developmental disabilities). These existing institutions have created an experienced base of workers at both the professional and semi-professional level. Everything about the Berkshire Center….from its physical facility to its target population…should be a strong draw for potential high-quality staff.
The property is a 2 hour drive from Boston, 3 hours from New York City, 1½ drive from Stamford/Greenwich (CT), and a 1 hour drive from Hartford (CT) and Albany (NY). There are more than 35 million people within a three hour drive in an area that is structurally underserved for residential treatment for women with eating disorders. But, the geographical market reach for this center need not be limited to this primary market territory of the Northeast. Just as the other high-quality Berkshire institutions attract international clientele, the Berkshire Eating Disorders Treatment Center will be attractive to patients from all over the Northeast, the East Coast and internationally.
Whether incorporated into programming for residents, or experienced by visiting families, some of the cultural institutions in the area include world class arts facilities such as Tanglewood, Jacob’s Pillow, Shakespeare & Co, The Clark Art Museum, and Norman Rockwell Museum.
