Middletown Vice Mayor Dora Bronston applauded the efforts of treatment centers like Choices.
“I hope some of our residents who need help from their drug addiction are able to come here and get the help they need,” said Bronston, who added it’s important to have a center in the city because some people with drug problems may have no transportation.
Bronston called the heroin epidemic “such a surprise” and it has impacted her family and friends.
“It touches whoever it’s going to touch,” she said.
Choices is located at 4421 Roosevelt Blvd., Suite A. Haley said Choices (Cognitive Healthcare Opportunities In Constructive Environmental Settings) has eight Ohio locations, and the ninth is expected to open in Springfield this summer, Haley said.
The center offers medication assisted treatment, individual therapy, case management services, intensive outpatient, substance abuse crisis intervention and drug testing.
