Frankfort City Council members have unanimously approved the allocation of $100,000 of financial aid and assistance to One80 Recovery Resources Inc. The funding will support the construction of a sober-living home.
The home seeks to provide mental health counseling and treatment, vocational training and job placement in addition to relationship support and family recovery assistance.
“Addiction is one of the most defining issues our generation will face. We need to confront this epidemic boldly, effectively, and compassionately. We have strived to give our police officers the tools to remove these poisons from our city streets, and they have been very successful in doing so. We have partnered with our community schools and local not-for-profits to teach our youth about the dangers of drugs. We need to do more to help those already in the grasp of addiction. We are pleased to announce our partnership with One80 Recovery Resources so that an inpatient addiction recovery center can be built in our community. We must erase the stigma of addiction. If you need help, ask for it. This new inpatient recovery center will help rebuild healthy lives and return citizens to a productive life of love and success,” said Frankfort Mayor Chris McBarnes.
The Frankfort facility is slated to open 2020.
