Lenawee County has started to receive Opioid Settlement monies and will continue to do so until 2040. In order to determine how these dollars should be allocated, we developed an in-depth community needs assessment for our community in 2023.
This assessment was presented to the Board of Commissioners in December 2023. The data guided a need for Recovery Housing in Lenawee County.
The recommendation to the Board of Commissioners was to create a subcommittee to explore the best options for creating Recovery Housing to offer stable, safe, and substance-free housing alternatives for those in recovery in Lenawee County.
The appointments to the subcommittee were confirmed by the Board of Commissioners at their January 10, 2024 meeting. The first meeting of the subcommittee was held on January 24, 2024 and you can watch the meeting here. They meet monthly on the fourth Wednesday at 1:30 PM in Chambers of the Old Court House Building at 310 N Main St. in Adrian, Michigan.
