Williamstown ZBA Continues Vote on Chemical Dependency Center

By Brittany PolitoiBerkshires Staff

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Zoning Board of Appeals has more questions before it OKs the conversion of a former nursing home to a behavioral health-care facility.

The panel on Thursday continued a special permit to operate an inpatient behavioral health-care facility at 1561 Cold Spring Road (Route 7), at the site of the former Sweet Brook Care Centers. It will gather questions for the applicant by next week and resume the conversation on July 21.

"Our hope is to provide services to a massively underserved population that obviously needs these types of treatment services," said the applicant's representative Megan Weaver of Complete Compliance Consulting.

Owner Williamstown Recovery Realty LLC intends to use the building as an inpatient chemical dependency/co-occurring disorder treatment facility with Williamstown Recovery LLC as the operator.  The facility aims to provide medical supervision, assessment, and clinical services for adult men and women.

It will fall under the same use as the previous nursing home and will not require any change to the current utilities.
