Yes a total loss. It burned really fast. It was just on the news and said no patients were there at the time. A doctor in town stopped and offered the buildig he just moved out of. They did not say where that is but that they would be treating patients on Monday.

I got a call from them today and yea they will be treating patients at a new temporary location. You will be getting a call. I am not going to post the new temporary location due to the fact that the nurse that called told mr that they know who did it and there is an ongoing investigation. Little did the person know that law enforcement also has access to the cameras on the property. That's why those signs were posted about local law enforcement monitoring the property. The clinic screens the cameras daily and law enforcement has tapes copies online they can view anytime up until the fire got to them. They will get the person who did it. From what I heard it sounds like it was someone who was mad at the doctors.

Investigators suspect it was from cigarette in back of building. We are not looking to blame anyone, just thankful nobody was injured and no other buildings damaged. Our temporary home will be at 216 Southtown Drive and we will be open treating patients Monday 9/27. We do have 24/7/365 security cameras and they are reviewing the tapes. Please let any of our patients know treatment will continue without missing a beat. We are there for them. We should have clinic rebuilt in 4-5 months in the same spot. Maybe better smoke detectors and a sprinkling system next time, huh?

Dr. Wood thank you for your reply. I'm not a patient there but know someone who is and they have said they are treated with respect and kindness. My best wishes to all.

You need to do some research. There are junkies who go there but there are different reasons for people being at this clinic. Some of us were victims of neglectful doctors. Which left us dependent on medication due to the irresponsible actions and practices of physicians we put our trust into. It can happen to you too! Imagine having an accident or an injury at work and a doctor flubbing up your treatment and leaving you worse than before and you become a chronic pain patient. Then the doctor just drugs you to get by. Not everyone addicted to pain medication got it from the streets. Not every opiate addict is a "junkie". Addiction can stoke anyone at anytime and there are many forms of treatment out there. Methadone is more so one of the types that is the closest to trading one drug for another. Suboxone doesn't produce a high like methadone does. Also who are you to say anything to anyone. It's not like your family is free from the plague of addiction. There are those that abuse the Suboxone clinic however unlikeost drug treatment centers self refined goes to great lengths in order to keep people from abusing the medication and the help offered at the clinic. They get counted and tested every couple weeks. They go once a month to the doctor then two weeks later
They come in or a count and a drug screen. They even mark the pills.
Also I am not sure if that was actually a doctor because everyone who has talked to one of the staff is hearing that it was a patient. Also I am sure they tried to make it look like an accident with a cig.

patient,
i dont know who told you that you get high on methadone but if they got high they must have mixed it with something else.i have been on methaone for 7 years and thank goodness for it i have not took any kind of pain meds and dont have any desire to.i tried the suboxone and thought i was going to die.but i guess whatever works and keeps you off drugs then go for it.

Methadones are more powerful than suboxone. they help you get off the stronger drugs that suboxone may not help very much. Everyone developes some kind of an immunity to every drug they take after a period of use. ive been going to self refine for almost 3 months and when i first started suboxones i felt great but it wasnt exactly a high and after doing 3 a day i dint feel as much as i did when i first started but it always helps with the withdraws and keeps me from relapsing and going out and doing pain pills. I havnt done many methadones but ones that ive done i could tell that it was much stronger and i felt high for a while. everyone will develope an immunity to every drug but im just glad that it helps so i dont go out and waste my money on ruining my life. I hope that everyone that a patient at self refine will listen to the doctors and try to get their life back on tract. If someone did burn down the building then they should spend a long time in prison cuz thats what they deserve.

A discarded cigarette, drought-cured mulch and gusty winds created a powerful fire cocktail Friday afternoon destroying a Danville drug rehab facility that opened less than a year ago.

The self refind clinic at 106 Belinda Blvd. was closed and empty when the fire was reported just before 2 p.m. Assistant Fire Chief Woody Ball was paying his lunch bill at nearby Applebee’s
when the alarm sounded and was on the scene within a minute.

Ball said when he arrived a fence at the southeast corner of the brick building was ablaze with the flames being blown up into the underside of the roof protruding over the edge of the structure.

“I tried to knock it down with a fire extinguisher but every time the wind would gust it was like a blow torch,” Ball said.

Aided by the wind, which reached gusts between 20 and 30 mph, the fire quickly got into the attic and spread across the whole building. Even though water was applied to the blaze within five minutes, Ball said, it couldn’t be stopped.

“That’s like a lumber yard up in those attics with all that dried wood,” he said.“All it takes is a little flame and it’s got all the fuel it needs.”

Dr. Bryan Wood, owner of self refind, was on the scene along with other employees watching as the fire swept across the roof of the clinic, which specializes in using Suboxone to treat people with addictions to painkillers. The facility opened in October 2009, he said.

“It was one of those days we didn’t have a clinic, so we didn’t have any patients or staff in today,” Wood said.

While the cause of the fire is still under investigation, Ball said fire officials strongly believe it was sparked by a cigarette tossed into some mulch that was extremely dry due the extended hot, dry spell.

The area along the fence that caught fire was a designated smoking area, he said.

“That’s happened a bunch of times across the U.S., mulch catching on fire,” Ball said.“I absolutely hate mulch.”

After the fire was brought under control, firefighters entered the building to recover most of the clinic’s medical records. No narcotics were kept on premises, but prescription pads also were retrieved to keep them from falling into the wrong hands, Ball said.

Boyle County firefighters were called to assist, along with off-duty Danville crews. On-duty city firefighters who were busy flushing hydrants were also mustered to the scene.

“We tried to upstaff as quickly as we could,” Ball said.“Even with the wind, it was still pretty hot out. You could only go 15 to 20 minutes without getting dehydrated.”

The building is a total loss and will be condemned this week, Ball said.

Danville, KY A fire has leveled a Boyle County business. Flames broke out at the "SelfRefind" drug treatment facility around one o'clock Friday afternoon.

Firefighters say high winds made it impossible to keep the flames from engulfing the building. The owner says he'll have to find a new home for a business that's helped many fight addiction.

A danville doctor has offered the use of the building he just vacated, so SelfRefind can see patients there come Monday. Investigators believe a cigarette tossed into some mulch may have caused the fire.
