Help bring hope and healing to our region.

Aurora Health Care Foundation is launching a $1.5 million capital campaign to help strengthen Aurora Behavioral Health Services’ substance abuse and recovery programs. 

There's a growing need for services. in 2015, the Dewey Center treated nearly 1,000 clients with addiction issues. A waiting list of more than 50 is in need of help. And the Alumni House, which provides a safe, transitional living environment for residents trying to establish a sober lifestyle, routinely turns away applicants due to lack of space.

The Renew, Restore, Rebuild Campaign will significantly enhance the creation of a specialized, modern campus that offers the full complex treatment for adults with virtually any substance abuse or addiction issue, through the following initiatives:

• Construction of a new Dewey Center to consolidate into a single facility all outpatient, partial hospital and residential addiction treatment services – opening mid-2018

• A Serenity Garden to offer a quiet place where Dewey Center residents and their loved ones can find rest and relaxation – opening mid-2018

• A new Alumni House expanding from its existing eight patient rooms to 12 rooms, providing a home-like transitional living facility – opening early 2017
