Rhea Co to begin drug and alcohol treatment program

Posted: Updated:
RHEA COUNTY, TN (WRCB) -

An alcohol and drug treatment program is in the works for Rhea County.

The County Commission voted Tuesday night to establish the program as an alternative to prison for certain people convicted of drug offenses.

The funding for the program will come from DUI fines collected in the Rhea County Circuit and Sessions Courts.

Officials say the program would only be for drug users, not people selling drugs.
