TOLEDO (WTOL) -A new drug recovery home is coming to Findlay.
The home will feature four apartments, one for a live-in supervisor and three clients who are in the Hacock County ADAMHS MOMS program.
It will be built on Crystal avenue just outside of town.
The funding comes from a 75-25 state of Ohio match, which the state is supplying $500,000.
The goal is to help women addicted to opiates and lower the rate of babies born with addiction as well.
“The other advantage is, that you’re in an environment that: A, is sober; and B, is supportive of what you’re going through. And you’re living with other individuals who have that same experience, and have that empathy that really understand it,” said Precia Stuby, the executive director of the Hancock County ADAMHS Board.
Construction is set to begin in July, and the recovery center should be open early 2020.
