One80 Vice-Chairman Paul Fry says “in recent years the opioid epidemic has created the need for projects like One80. The project will be a 16-bed (60-bed future expansion) in-patient residential recovery facility for men seeking recovery from addictions.” A groundbreaking ceremony on the new Frankfort ONE80 facility will be announced shortly.

Our community, like many others in this country, has been adversely impacted by the opioid epidemic. Besides the devastating effect on the family and on our community, it effects the economic prosperity of Clinton County. This challenge grant will help ONE80 Recovery Resources provide life-changing services that will strengthen local families and provide treatment opportunities for those seeking recovery from addiction. I strongly believe ONE80 Recovery Resources will make a positive impact on fighting the opioid crisis in Clinton and surrounding counties. The Farmers Bank is proud to be a small part of this vital effort.” said Karen F. Gregerson, President and CEO.
