Resolution Seeks To Explore Additional Drug Treatment And Recovery Facilities

A resolution which seeks to increase access to drug treatment and recovery has been advanced by the House Human Services Committee. State Representative Jim Gregory says the resolution he's introduced would have the Joint State Government Commission review unused state-owned properties and buildings for possible use as drug treatment and recovery facilities, noting that would remove a barrier to treatment and provide hope to people with drug addictions. Committee Chair Gene DiGirolamo says its often difficult to find empty treatment beds on weekends in PA. Under the resolution the Joint State Government Commission would have one year to issue a report on its findings.
