Project Description:








New Horizons will be kicking off a $900,000 fundraising campaign to build a new 7,000 square foot building to replace our aging (and in much need of repair) Alcohope facility located in Indian River County (this facility does serve all four counties of District 15).  Private donors have already committed to $300,000, with the expectation that a total of $500,000 can be raised.  This project would be a perfect blend of private/public partnership funding that would help ensure that quality, low cost substance abuse services are available to the clients of the four county area of District 15.












Measurable Outcome Anticipated:






65% of clients completing the program will have 12 months or more of abstinence from alcohol or drugs.
