CROW WING COUNTY BOARD: Detox unit to open in January


Crow Wing County commissioners heard Tuesday the detox facility is expected to reopen here in January, later than the Oct. 1 date discussed earlier. 

Beth Wilms, Community Services director, said the number of people taken to detox is down and the transportation to other facilities is working smoothly at present.

Board Chairman Paul Thiede said if the numbers are down does that mean the county is in a position of creating the need for the detox facility by having one here?
