The Arch Halfway House Plans Expansion

July 24, 2014, 6:03 PM by Sammi Bjelland

The Arch Halfway House Plans Expansion
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A new facility for men and women overcoming addiction will be going up in Sioux Falls next year.

The Carroll Institute has filed a building plan with the City of Sioux Falls for a new transitional house.

For people facing drug or alcohol addiction, the Arch Halfway House is a place for recovery. Now, the Carroll Institute is working on plans to expand its reach with the Arch.

"This particular expansion is going to be very unique, in that it's going to be adding to our footprint. Adding capacity, but connecting all the buildings. So really there's only going to be one building," Executive Director, Gary Tuschen said.

The new addition will be a four-story building, located on West 12th Street and Spring Avenue; right next to the two buildings already in place at The Arch.

The Arch currently has a four to eight week waiting list. This addition will boost capacity from 90 to 109.

It will also boost morale for those struggling to get back into society.

"Right now within the current structures, there's not a lot of space for these individuals. The sleeping rooms are tight. The dining room services are tight. It's not uncommon for these folks to have to get up early in the mooring just to stand in line to take a shower," Tuschen said.

That's all about to change. The new building will offer more space for amenities like an exercise room, family visiting space and an improved dining area.

The total project will cost between $3.6 million to $3.8 million. Though the non-profit is receiving some funding from Wells Fargo, staff has also been working hard to make sure this project becomes a reality.

"It's exciting. We've been planning this, like I said, for a number of years. We've been on a beans and rice diet, so we know what we want. We're going to get what we want. And it's really going to give us a better opportunity to do a better job," Tuschen said.

Ground breaking should begin in about two weeks. The project is expected to take about 14 months to complete.
