DECATUR, Ill. (WCIA)– Sheriff Howard Buffett announced his foundation is giving 30 million dollars for a new drug rehab campus. The new facility is expected to have a big impact on the area.
Drug rehabilitation counselors say they have seen high numbers of clients for opioid addictions. They think the new clinic will help combat the issue. The new facility will have a comprehensive program. There will be therapists, a place for patients to leave children while they get treated, and even a movie theater and gym. All of these services are believed to help patients get better. They’re hoping the new clinic will be able to service more clients struggling with addiction.
