Wicomico County could get a new treatment center to help those facing opioid and heroin abuse.

There is a proposal for a new facility that would also help with long term employment once treatment has been completed.

WBOC reports that Wicomico County Executive Bob Culver says he would re-purpose an existing pre-release correctional facility off Nanticoke Road.

Culver told the television station that part of the problem for those facing drug addiction is long term employment once they kick the addiction.
