People in the central California community of Happy Valley are apprehensive about a proposed drug treatment center for women and children. The Christian drug treatment center would be part of the Sacramento Valley Teen Challenge, Inc. The proposed center would be an addition to the existing Teen Challenge building with room for more expansion in the future.
The executive director of the Good News Rescue Mission welcomes the proposed Teen Challenge drug treatment center. Cesar Partida believes the center would fill a huge need in the community.
“It’s such a need here in this county,” Partida said. “We have a waiting list and it’s constantly full.”
