POCONO TOWNSHIP, Pa. - Pocono Township Manager Donna Asure confirmed a conditional use application from Brookdale Enterprises was approved to use the previous Brookdale Resort as a drug and alcohol treatment center.
The application was approved at the township's Aug. 15 conditional use hearing at St. Luke's Ambulance.
According to the project description, "The Brookdale Treatment Resort will be an inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation center developed in phases with a proposed ultimate capacity of 196 beds."
In the conditional use application, it stated "Brookdale Treatment Resort will be a private, sub-acute and freestanding Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Center. The facility will be licensed by and under the jurisdiction of the Pennsylvania Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs. This co-ed facility will provide patients, who are at least 18 years of age, with treatment for chemical dependency. The Treatment Resort will be a self-contained facility located in a rural, tranquil setting that permits patients to engage in the process of self-reflection and change, leading to recovery from dependency and a return to chemical-free, productive life."
