Lowndes County - South Georgia will soon have a new drug rehabilitation center where women can receive treatment without being separated from their families.

Community leaders broke ground on the Pines Family Campus Friday. The residential recovery center is designed for women who have a chronic history of drug and alcohol abuse and their children. It consists of twenty eight duplex apartments, a treatment center and a day care facility.

"Women have a hard time with addiction because they become secretive and ashamed and this gives them community support and protection," said George Bennett, Pines Family Campus Director.

Funding for the rehab center comes from the Georgia Department of Community Affairs.

The facility is located on Smith Avenue and should be open in about six months.
