New treatment center coming to Grants Pass

Grants Pass, Ore. — A new treatment center coming to Grants Pass will help hundreds of heroin and opiate addicts.

Grace Roots, a committee part of the nonprofit Securing Our Safety, recruited a private company to bring the Grants Pass Treatment Center to life.

According to Grace Roots Chairperson Nancy Yonally, the outpatient medically assisted treatment center will be built in the old Curves building on N.E. Seventh Street. It will be staffed with doctors, nurses, and counselors and has the potential to serve 400 people.

Yonally said 200 Josephine County residents travel to Medford every day for treatment, and the need has never been greater.

“Josephine County has a need to recognize that we have a problem and once you recognize that there’s kind of a responsibility to do something about it,” Yonally said.

Yonally said the the center will provide individual care plans that could include prescriptions of drugs used to wean addicts off heroin. They hope to have it open sometime this October.
