FAYETTEVILLE — According to Jeff Horton, chief of the Mental Health Licensure andCertification Section of the State Division of Facility Services, the Arbor Residential Treatment Facility — where stabbing suspect Bobby Bradshaw lived — is a supervised living group home for mentally ill adults.

The home — at 4710 Arbor Road — is licensedfor six clients. The original license dates back to April 1, 1991. The license isissued to Community Innovations, Inc., which runs 29 facilities in NorthCarolina.

The last full inspection of the home was August, 2000. At that time, some problemswere found. A follow-up visit in January 2001 found the problems to be corrected. The state also investigated a complaint in January, but found it to beunsubstantiated. The state has never taken any administrative actionsagainst the home, and there have been no fines or penalties levied.

Horton says this type of group home is not typically locked, and it is not uncommon for it to be located in a neighborhood.

Some clients in this type of home do have jobs.
