LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A huge announcement Friday from Louisville's only no-fee drug recovery facility, The Healing Place.
The center announced a multi-million dollar expansion to the West Market Street men's complex. The complex will increase from 24 detox beds to 50, and the long term recover unit will go from 250 beds to 426.
The chairmen for The Healing Place said their facility is filled to capacity every day and the beds and treatment space are desperately needed due to the growing heroin epidemic in Kentuckiana.
The program is self-sustaining - clients work together to support the day to day operations.
WHAS11's Renee Murphy will have much more on the expansion tonight during the 6 p.m. newscast.
