Frederick County is slated to receive $500,000 toward a detox treatment facility as part of the Governor’s proposed budget for the upcoming year. County Executive Jan Gardner requested capital funds to renovate the second floor of the county’s work release center into separate space for a privately operated detox facility. Lt. Gov. Boyd Rutherford today announced that the State budget for Fiscal Year 2020 will include capital funds for the project.
“I am excited that the State is helping to fund the renovations for our detox center,” Executive Gardner said Thursday. “This bipartisan partnership will help us to meet the needs of citizens who are struggling with addiction.”
