A facility for drug recovery may be coming to Berlin.
Tish Ottey a law enforcement officer initially saw a growing need for recovery support and established the Douglas K. Hamilton House for Recovery in Salisbury.
It serves 48 men.
But WBOC reports that she has been inspired to reach out to other counties and has landed a contract in Berlin for a home whose location has not been disclosed.
She hopes to open the facility within the next six months after a town zoning committee reviews her application.
The television station reports that Ottey is aware of concerns by those who may favor a recovery facility but just not near them.
She says there had been those concerns when she opened the facility in Salisbury but adds once neighbors saw how the home worked and structure for each resident they understood her vision.
