Rosecrance Faces NIMBY in Chicago Market Expansion  E-mail
Addiction Treatment Industry Newswire

08/04/2015 -ATIN - Rosecrance, one of Illinois' largest non-profit addiction treatment operations based in the Northwest part of the state in Rockford, IL, is meeting resistance by local residents as it attempts to expand into the near north side of Chicago with an outpatient operation as well as a transitional living residence, according to local reports. But long-time Rosecrance CEO Phil Eaton told Treatment Magazine that ultimately he expects Rosecrance will succeed in working with local residents and that the project will go forward.

No Approval Needed for Outpatient

According to local reports, Rosecrance is planning an outpatient operation for the first floor of the multi-story building, for which it does not need additional zoning or use approvals, the report said. More problematic is the plan to create transitional living operation on the upper floors, which reports said would be for young people and be a private-pay operation costing $2,500.00 a month.

Well Prepared

"We are getting some NIMBY pushback," Eaton admitted. But he added that Rosecrance has come to the project well prepared, as well as prepared to work closely with residents and local officials to make sure concerns of all interested parties are dealt with and solved to fullest extent possible. He said that the project remains in the construction phase.
