Charlottesville Treatment Center Shutting Down

January 18, 2012

The Jefferson Trail Treatment Center for Children announced Wednesday its program will be shutting down, effective Feb. 24.

The center, which treats teens suffering from substance abuse, is located on Arlington Boulevard in Charlottesville. However, that property has been sold and the building is set to be demolished.

The center's CEO sent CBS19 the following statement:

"Jefferson Trail is proud to have served this community. There are hundreds of adolescents who have received high quality behavioral treatment services and have had their lives dramatically improved as a result of the efforts of the dedicated individuals from the area who work at the treatment center."

The center's website, JeffersonTrail.com, redirects to Universal Health Services, Inc., UHSinc.com.
