The second construction phase was completed on October 1, 1995 (stations C and D). In addition to increasing the capacity by a further 80 beds, an extensive range of occupational and occupational therapy options was set up and a multi-purpose hall with a swimming pool was put into operation. In addition, the outpatient area was expanded by setting up a general psychiatric day clinic with 20 treatment places.
A further expansion phase was completed with the opening of the drug clinic on October 1, 2000, which comprises a ward with 20 beds and a specialized day clinic with 12 places. In addition, a branch of the drug clinic was set up in downtown Augsburg .
