New detox center open in southern Colorado Springs


It’s been in the making for nearly a year and a half, and now a new detox center is open in southern Colorado Springs. 

In November 2017, southern Colorado organization Crossroads’ Turning Points made an agreement to take over detox work in El Paso County. Since then, they’ve been renovating a new center near Interstate 25 and South Academy Boulevard.

Crossroads’ said they invested $1.4 million in the new center. Issues during construction delayed the opening. 

The previous detox facility was at the El Paso County jail.
