A new state-sponsored substance abuse recovery center is expected to open next month in eastern Idaho.
The Post Register reports that the Center for Hope in Idaho Falls is expected to open in mid-July. It's the eighth such facility created in Idaho.
The effort to open the center began two years ago when the Idaho Association of Counties asked lawmakers to fund the facilities across the state. Along with the Center for Hope, recovery centers have been funded in Bannock, Kootenai and Nez Perce counties this year.
