OREGON – Sinnissippi Centers’ new office in Oregon is days away from being open.
The agency announced Monday that the facility, at 100 Jefferson St., will open a few days before the July 17 ribbon-cutting and open house. The 6,400-square-foot office will replace the 125 S. Fourth St. location.
The new facility will have 11 offices, two group homes, and a play therapy room for children.
“The new building will allow us great flexibility to provide group services and to meet the needs of both our adult and child/adolescent population,” Patrick Phelan, Sinnissippi Centers president and CEO, said in a news release. “Improved waiting rooms, reception areas, offices and other facilities will provide our clients the type of environment that is conducive to treatment and is welcoming to the public.”
The new Oregon facility will be named in honor of Chet Kobel, a longtime board member of SPF Corporation, the entity that has been overseeing the construction of new Sinnissippi Centers facilities.
“He has been a wonderful addition to our board and is a passionate advocate for the community mental health system,” Phelan said of Kobel.
Sinnissippi Centers serves Carroll, Lee, Ogle and Whiteside counties. In addition to Oregon, there are offices in Dixon, Sterling, Mount Carroll, and Rochelle. The agency provides substance abuse screening and treatment services. It also offers treatment for mental illness and substance use disorders, individual and family counseling, early childhood mental health and nearly 30 other programs and services.
