Frontier Behavioral Health Opens New Addiction Recovery Housing Facility in Martin

MARTIN, Ky. (WMDJ) – Officials gathered Wednesday for the opening of a new addiction recovery housing facility in Floyd County.


Frontier Behavioral Health held a grand opening ceremony at their newest facility located across from Garth Vocational School in Martin.


Gov. Andy Beshear attended the ceremony saying, “(Addiction) arose in our lifetime. We should not leave it to our children, it has taken so many lives.”


“This is a part of what we’ve been trying to do all over Kentucky,” said Gov. Beshear. “That’s to ensure, no matter where you are, no matter when it is, that if you’re ready for treatment that there is a bed ready for you that day.”


The 16-bed facility will serve men in recovery with education and health services while helping them to get into the workforce.


Frontier officials said there are plans to expand the facility to another building located next door soon.
