County Seeks Bidders For Drug Treatment At Broome Developmental

The Broome Developmental Center is one step closer to becoming a site for addiction treatment.  New York’s Office of Addiction and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) will fund 50 beds for medically-supervised withdrawal in Building 1 of the Center, located in the Town of Dickinson. It could eventually have a hundred beds and include more services. In order to get a licensed provider, Broome County has issued a Request for Proposals. Democratic Broome County Executive Jason Garnar said details on other services will depend on the provider, but hand-offs to the next level of care will be necessary.  Garnar said local officials did bring community concerns to the state.
