Group wants to put 20-woman drug treatment center off Bailey Hill Road

EUGENE, Ore. - A residential drug treatment center got support from the Lane County Commission on Tuesday.

Chris Hodges of Teen Challenge Pacific Northwest said a proposed site off Bailey Hill road got the OK from the county.

The faith-based program has worked for 5 years to establish a site for up to 20 women. The organization encountered opposition from neighbors and the county.

Teen Challenge residential centers are in about 100 countries worldwide, Hodges said.
