The Hale Foundation asks for your endorsement of the Hale Foundation's New Inpatient Treatment Center in South Augusta.
As of July, 2018, there were 26 confirmed fatal overdoses and 35 more pending autopsy and toxicology this year in Richmond County (LeBlanc, 2018, Augusta Chronicle). According to the National Institute of Health, poor treatment availability is one of the leading barriers to substance abuse treatment in this country (Rapp, et al., 2006). Additionally, treatment options in the CSRA are lacking and the cost is significant for those who are able to seek help. The Hale Foundation hopes to address these needs by establishing a new, affordable medical program in Augusta for those seeking treatment for their substance use disorder.
We, the undersigned, call on the Augusta Commission to approve the zoning for the Hale Foundation's New Treatment Center in South Augusta.
