Credo Seeks More Space To Treat Addicts
It's a sign of the times for Jefferson County - a center which treats addictions is looking for more space.
The Credo Community Center says it has about 75 more outpatients than it did a year ago.
Aside from a population increase, more addictions to painkillers seem to be driving the increase in clients.
"With anything, we see the population increase in Jefferson County that's going to result in more people that are in need of alcohol and substance abuse services," said Jim Scordo, Credo's executive director.
Now Credo is looking to create more counseling offices at its West Main Street facility in Watertown.
"We have some residential offices in our building and we're working with them to create some more spaces here for the outpatient needs," said Liz Stevens, clinical director for Credo.
Credo may also move its administrative offices somewhere else to free up more space.
