DRUG ADDICTION TREATMENT CENTER COMING TO RICHMOND

(Richmond, IN)--A new drug addiction treatment facility is coming to Richmond.  Mayoral candidate Kyle Ingram announced Tuesday that a center known as Recovery of Indiana will be setting up shop in the former Perfect Circle Credit Union office on Progress Drive.  Keith Vukasinovich with ROI talked about the goals.  "Our focus is on getting people to learn a new normal.  Normal is not being tethered to a methadone clinic.".  Instead of methadone, the center will treat with the drug Vivitrol.  It’s given through a monthly injection.  Between 300-400 people will be served.  The goal is to have the center open by the first of the year.
