Renaissance Recovery receives green light to add patient beds

Oct. 13, 2016: The Metropolitan Planning Commission gave Renaissance Recovery the green light to move forward with plans to add overnight beds to its treatment center for drug-addicted pregnant mothers.

The Metropolitan Planning Commission approved Renaissance Recovery Center's measure to transform its second story Thursday afternoon. 

The center, which treats drug-addicted pregnant mothers, will will be adding beds for patients who need overnight care.

"It's still a long road ahead," Renaissance Recovery CEO Chris Reilly said. "There's still a lot of construction and staffing requirements, but this is a big one for us and we're really excited."

Also at its meeting Thursday, MPC delayed action on a proposal for mixed-use development in the Bearden area until its Nov. 10 meeting, and delayed action on a proposed Verizon Wireless cell tower at Holston Drive and Martin Luther King Junior Avenue until Dec. 8.
