EAST BRAINERD, TN (WRCB) -

A local facility is bucking the trend when it comes to treating those with behavioral issues.

Patients started arriving Wednesday morning at the new Parkridge Valley adult and senior campus in East Brainerd.

The new facility will treat adult and geriatric patients who suffer from mental health issues or addiction.  They have a number of treatment rooms, classrooms, and 64 beds on site.

The director says this facility is important for both patients seeking treatment as well as the community.

The new campus has both inpatient and outpatient treatment, as well as emergency response treatment.

The Morris Hill campus will now be dedicated exclusively to child and adolescent patients.
