AUBURN, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) – Allendale Treatment, a detox and inpatient treatment center, is set to open in Auburn. Greater Fort Wayne Inc. says the $1.8 million facility, which will be the only of its kind in northeast Indiana, will create up to 30 jobs.

GFW says Allendale will be the only treatment center of its kind in northeast Indiana and will offer primary substance abuse disorder detox and stabilization.

“When we started this journey two years ago, we quickly found out that there was a critical need for detox services,” said Mickey Ashpole, co-founder and executive director of Allendale Treatment. “We are proud to offer the only primary substance use disorder, free-standing inpatient detox and stabilization center to the local area. We provide a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere to help our patients through the withdrawal symptoms associated with detox from drugs and alcohol.”

Allendale’s medical staff focuses on individualized care and withdrawal symptom management. GFW says the center is equipped with individual accommodations for every patient.

“My goal has always been to bring quality, individualized treatment centers to northern Indiana, as opposed to having to go out of state for treatment services,” said Ashpole. “Addiction treatment is a daily job, and I’m proud that we’ve been able to help our community by providing high quality, individualized treatment services.”

A ribbon cutting ceremony is planned for August 7 and is open to the public.
