PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - An opioid addiction treatment program will occupy the space once used by the India Street Public Health Center in Portland.

The Portland Press Herald reports (http://bit.ly/2n2iS4u ) Grace Street Recovery Services says it’s moving its Auburn Street facility to India Street to help a larger number of addicts in the Portland area.

The organization offers medication-assisted treatment and intensive counseling at clinics in Portland, Lewiston and Sanford.

The city’s India Street Public Health Center treated HIV-positive patients and closed in December. The facility is still used for sexually transmitted disease testing and treatment, a needle exchange program for drug users and the nonprofit Portland Community Free Clinic.
