"Our executive director, Timothy Worden has developed a program that will provide extensive and personalized treatment far superior to most other programs. The location provides residents with large personal living suites as well as a spacious property that we are currently renovating and enhancing to become our flagship model. Addiction recovery is never an easy process, but we hope to make our guests feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible so they are able to fully focus on their treatment," finished Holloway.
As the real estate arm of GMH Associates, GMH Capital Partners is responsible for all acquisitions, development and management of the GMH real estate portfolio. Futures of Palm Beach is the latest addition to the GMH Capital Partners niche-based endeavors, including a new student housing development in Salisbury, MD.
"We are pleased to assist GMH Ventures in finding an ideal site to support the Futures Wellness Centers business model, and make this remarkable project a reality," stated Gary M. Holloway Jr., President of GMH Capital Partners. "We've formed a great relationship with the Village of Tequesta to bring this state-of-the-art facility to Palm Beach County.
