ADACCV’s Journey Recovery Center facing hurdles as construction begins.

News

The Alcohol and Drug Abuse Council of the Concho Valley (ADACCV) is facing some hurdles as construction of its Journey Recovery Center facility begins.

Eric Sanchez with ADACCV says part of the issues they’re facing is cost of utilities as well as labor costs–arising due to recovery efforts being made in southeast Texas in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

He says the center is crucial for the detoxification process of those individuals addicted to drugs and would work hand in hand with ADACCV’s current prevention and treatment program.

As of now, the closest detox center for Concho Valley residents is in Odessa–which Sanchez says may create more anxiety and other issues for residents trying to stay clean while also trying to stay as close to home as possible.

ADACCV’s future detox facility is being built near the Roy K Robb facility in northern San Angelo along US 277.

With its construction, ADACCV would be able to consolidate its residential treatment services to one location and double its treatment capacity–providing 30 treatment beds for men and 18 for women.

The cost of the project is about $6 million for the construction–which ADACCV is close to reaching, however they are seeking the public’s health in expanding what they currently have.

ADACCV is hosting an open house on December 16, 2017 with opportunities to support the construction of the Journey Resource Center facility.

One way donors can help is by purchasing a brick through ADACCV’s “Brick Paver Fundraiser” which will be placed at the site of the facility.
