Dickenson County to construct 96-bed substance abuse recovery center
The Virginia Coalfield Economic Development Authority has issued $4 million in loans to Dickenson County officials to help in the construction of a 96-bed inpatient substance abuse recovery center.
The agencies jointly announced the venture that is unwritten by a private company. The facility will be constructed outside of Clintwood in the Red Onion community and will also create 52 new jobs within five years of operation.
Clinic operators say the facility will provide a 12-month step program for patients from initial treatment to eventual employment.
