DCCCA leadership Thursday morning broke ground for a new outpatient facility in eastern Lawrence that will house behavioral health, family preservation, prevention, and foster parent/adoption services.

The building will be next to the current DCCCA Lawrence Outpatient location at 1739 E. 23rd St., southeast of 23rd and Harper streets, according to a news release from the organization.


Among other community health services, the Lawrence-based nonprofit provides residential and outpatient treatment for behavioral health and substance use.

“This is an exciting building project that demonstrates our commitment to providing quality services for clients in the Lawrence/Douglas County community,” DCCCA CEO Lori Alvarado said in the release. “We are proud to highlight our growth as an agency.”

Construction will begin this month, with an estimated completion date in 2023.

DCCCA is working with Bartlett & West and BHS Construction, according to the release.

DCCCA provided these renderings of the new facility:
