Opioid recovery center holds ribbon cutting

MARYVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) - Construction is now complete on the True Purpose Ministries facility in Maryville.

The facility is set to house 64 men recovering from opioid addiction.

City officials, Randy Boyd and a representative of Senator Corker's office attended the official ribbon cutting for Dane's House.

The final building will be the graduation house, named after a young East Tennessee man who died from an opioid overdose. 

"It's honoring my son and the love that I have for my son, "said Jan McCoy, Dane's mother. "He was a good kid and I think if he was here today, he would be proud of this, and proud of the fact that I'm doing something to show that I still live him."

The faith-based recovery center hopes to spread their rehabilitation program across the state.
