The History of Edgefield
Edgefield has been a place of serenity for all its years. The building was first built in the 1930’s and then belonged to a farmer, then a novelist. It has been a landmark for many years in the community. The vision for a recovery setting came in 2009 one late sunny, spring day when Mr. Robert Rayford, the founder of the recovery center, was sitting under one of the magnificent live oaks and it became clear this was a place that could help others.
The property was then transformed into what has now been licensed by DHH and accredited by the Joint Commission of Hospitals Organization to treat and offer a chance for recovery to those stricken with the bondage of addiction. The structures on the grounds are rich with history and adorned with live oak, pecan, bald cypress, azalea, and crepe myrtle trees. With a bayou that swings through the back of the property, and room to move around in the pecan orchard on the 27 acre estate, it is nothing short of a place to dissimulate and start experiencing the miracles that await you in recovery.
