State Reps. John Rogers (D-Mentor-on-the-Lake) and Jamie Callendar (R-Concord Township) today announced that the state has awarded $220,539 for the Lake-Geauga Recovery Centers to help with funding of the recently acquired post recovery center in Painesville Township.

“Too many families have or know of individuals living with a substance abuse disorder and the need for accessibility to a variety of treatment and post treatment options,” Rogers said. “There remains a tremendous need for these type of facilities throughout Ohio and the State’s willingness to partner with Lake-Geauga helps to bring much needed investment to Lake County while helping to make this center a reality!”

“I am glad these resources are being used to help those struggling with substance abuse in our community,” Callender said. “Addiction doesn’t just touch the individual struggling with addiction but the whole family. I trust this will be a beacon of hope for those families caught in the crosshairs of this epidemic.”

The state will be providing 75 percent of the total project’s costs, with Lake-Geauga Recovery Centers making up the difference. This facility will provide housing for six adult males, on a path of recovery, who are sober and working.  The level II recovery home includes a recovery house manager living on site, certified as a Peer Recovery Coach or Chemical Dependency Counselor Assistant, while providing support to the men residing in the home and accountability to the general public.

This announcement came after today’s meeting of the State Controlling Board.
