PULASKI; Va. — Update: Town Council submitted letter to the state on Friday. The full letter is attached.
A new clinic to treat heroin addiction could be coming to Pulaski, but it's not exactly a welcomed new business.
Town Council is in the process of writing a letter expressing their concerns to the state about having what's commonly referred to a "methadone" clinic in the town of Pulaski.
The town received a letter from the State Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services in December, letting them know that someone had applied for a license to run an Opioid Treatment Service in Pulaski.
A typical Opioid Treatment Center helps people with an addiction to heroin or opiates. One of the most common treatments is prescribing someone methadone.
