EARLEVILLE, Md. (AP) - Recovery Centers of America has announced that it will be transforming a Cecil County mansion into a drug and alcohol treatment center.

The Baltimore Sun reports (https://bsun.md/1XoChaV) that the treatment center is scheduled to open in July and will employ 70 people full time inside Bracebridge Hall in Earleville. The company is spending $13.7 million to turn the 31,000-square-foot mansion into a 108-bed residential facility.

Bracebridge Hall was built in 1991, and was originally a private residence.

Recovery Centers of America recently raised $231.5 million to build centers for addiction medicine nationwide. It has acquired seven other sites in the Northeast and plans to operate 1,200 beds by the end of 2018.

Cecil County has been particularly hard hit by the statewide opioid epidemic.
