UF Health Florida Recovery Center (FRC) – ranked among the nation’s top 10 addiction recovery programs by Newsweek/Statista – will soon have a new residential treatment campus in northwest Gainesville on a 5.6-acre parcel in close vicinity to the UF Health Psychiatric Hospital and UF Health Springhill clinics.

Groundbreaking on the new FRC campus will take place this spring for the construction of 47,600  square feet of residential and administrative space in three buildings featuring modern but warm architectural style that values light and open floor plans. New construction will include a single-story commons building and two three-story residential buildings. The commons building will house an exercise room, lounge and an outdoor covered deck for gatherings.

A mix of private and semi-private rooms will be available in the new residential buildings, which significantly expands the number of residential patients the FRC can enroll for onsite treatment from roughly 80 to a maximum of 138. In addition to the new construction, an existing, 18,700-square-foot administrative building will be renovated to house offices, addiction evaluations, group and individual therapy, lectures and outpatient services. The master plan includes a location for a new administrative/clinical building in the future.

Development plans include an outdoor pool and patio as well as a covered pool pavilion. Close to the pool, a yoga park with a turf surface for group classes is also planned, as is a lighted and fenced pickleball court.  The new campus is within easy access to walking trails, sidewalks and other public-use green spaces, and is within walking distance to shopping and restaurants.

Construction is expected to be complete by the summer of 2025.
