FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- A new partner in the fight against addiction opened its doors Thursday in Fort Wayne.
With over 1200 nonfatal overdoses in 2017, the need is huge.
Fort Wayne Recovery offers high quality therapy and aims to push clients back to full, productive lives. Counselors will offer outpatient addiction therapy as well as individual therapy.
The program was designed by recovering addicts and alcoholics who are now enjoying sober, healthy lives. The CEO, Mickey Ashpole, has been there himself.
"I can talk to them because I've been where they're at. I've been on the other side. After several years of doing the right thing and consistently working on myself I got to the point where I'm at today where I'm able to open up a treatment center," Ashpole said.
