October 22 - Embrace Life Recovery Center
Embrace Life Recovery Center is a 28-day drug and alcohol recovery facility that will be unique and will serve the very unserved population that is struggling with addiction, through a holistic recovery process. The facility will be a luxury retreat facility. It will not be a traditional lock down, institutional facility. 

The owner, Stephanie Ford, will be purchasing the Heritage Plaza that is located at Crossroads Business Center next to the Comfort Inn & Suites Hotel in Jerome, ID. This building has been there for over 10 years now. The new owner plans to build out the facility and create a warm retreat-like environment. The building has three levels and totals over 14,000 sq. ft. The project will exceed $4 million in Cap Ex and the center will employee 20-25 employees initially and grow from there.

We will be hosting an awareness event regarding the Opioid Crisis and other addictions and how we can be a solution to this growing problem. We will have a couple of speakers including Laurie Likely, house representative working on the Governor's Opioid Crisis Task Force. We would like to personally invite you to be apart of this solution to many of our problems that our community is currently facing.
