Portland, ME: Foundation House, an extended-care mental health and substance abuse treatment program, has officially purchased the property formerly known as the Sparrow Hawk Mountain Ranch located in Bethel, Maine.
Currently a staple of Foundation House’s programmatic landscape, the formerly leased property will now undergo significant development, to begin offering primary treatment as a complementary contribution to its historic, industry-leading extended care program. Beginning this year, Foundation House will commence a multi-year project to outfit the Ranch with the necessary infrastructure to sustain primary treatment for both men and women, and a separate project to develop spaces to accommodate family, trauma, professional and experiential workshops. Residents of Foundation House’s extended-care program will also continue to have access to the Ranch.
The Foxhole Ranch is located on 120 acres and shares a border with the White Mountain National Forest, granting the property direct access to over 750,000 acres of pristine forest. Programs running at the Ranch will utilize the newly developed infrastructure, as well as the immense backdrop of the National Forest. “The property truly is one-of-a-kind,” General Manager Will Hutchinson said, “We’ve had our eyes on this space for quite a while and are excited about its truly unbridled potential. It’s time for Foundation House to bring our dedication to excellence to the realm of primary treatment.” The expansion of the Foxhole Ranch will be reflective of the sustainability of recovery, with all proposed new construction qualifying as zero carbon emission. “In times like these, it has never been clearer that our collective impact on the planet can no longer go unaddressed,” Will continued. “It is our intention to develop the Foxhole Ranch with future generations in mind and with long-term sustainability as a chief priority.”
