ASHLAND, Ky. (AP) — Officials said a new addiction treatment center is planned in eastern Kentucky.

Addiction Recovery Care announced on Wednesday that it signed a letter of intent with Bon Secours Mercy Health to purchase part of the former Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital campus in Greenup County.

The company provides addiction treatment and recovery services throughout the state. It said in a statement that it estimates 250 jobs will be created.

Addiction Recovery Care CEO Tim Robinson said in a statement that the facility will help ensure residents in a region heavily impacted by the addiction crisis can access the resources and services they need to begin their journeys to recovery.
