CAMPTON HILLS – The Campton Hills Village Board on Tuesday is expected to open the public hearing on an annexation agreement for an addiction treatment center proposed for the former Glenwood School.

But, because the Campton Township Community Center is too small to accommodate the anticipated public turnout, Village President Patsy Smith said the hearing will be continued without testimony to 6:30 p.m. Nov. 27 at the Congregational United Church of Christ, 40W451 Fox Mill Blvd.

Kiva Recovery is seeking to annex to Campton Hills and needs a special-use permit for an addiction facility.

Representatives for the Kiva Recover Center have said it will be a high-end, private residential addiction treatment center for alcohol and substance abuse. Target clients include executives, lawyers and physicians. An average stay would range from 30 to 60 days.

Residents spoke against Kiva Recovery during the packed and often hourslong Plan Commission meetings this fall.

Their concerns included a burden on fire and police services, lower property values, staff-to-patient ratios, the facility’s security and secondary problems clients might have.

The Plan Commission this month recommended approval of a special-use permit for Kiva Recovery.

Information about Kiva Recovery – including public hearing transcripts, a value impact study, a traffic evaluation and a Power Point presentation – is available at www.villageofcamptonhills.org.
