Madison County hopes to have all proposals reviewed by September 1, 2017.
The Healing Center concept originated in 2015, when Judge Executive Reagan Taylor wanted to find a solution for the rampant drug use in Madison County and the overcrowding of the Madison County Detention Center. The rehabilitation and vocational center will enroll individuals into substance abuse treatment as a form of alternative sentencing. Features of the center will include detox, independent living facilities and life skills curriculum.
