The site to be renovated for Recovery Centers of America is at 2380 McGinley Road in Monroeville.

A residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility is coming to Monroeville.

Recovery Centers of America received unanimous approval May 14 from Monroeville council to begin renovating a vacant building at 2380 McGinley Road.

The organization plans to spend up to $20 million on renovations.

Approximately 78,000 square feet, the building sits on more than nine acres, according to county real estate records.

Chief Clinical Officer Dr. Deni Carise said the facility would have up to 125 beds with as many as 140 staff members.

She said the rehab center, as a for-profit business, would not have governmental contracts or accept court references. The patients would be voluntary admissions.

The center, with headquarters in King of Prussia and eight other locations in Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts, accepts insurance from major providers, including Aetna, Cigna and Blue Cross Blue Shield.

A call about the cost to patients was not returned.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
