EFFINGHAM, N.H. (AP) - An addiction treatment center operator is planning to buy the 72-acre property of an Effingham facility that used to treat people with brain injuries.

New Hampshire Public Radio reports (https://bit.ly/1PsCpy7 ) that Eric Spofford plans to open Green Mountain Treatment Center on the grounds of the former Lakeview NeuroRehabilitation Center, which was closed last year.

The center will operate a residential program for up to 75 men and women who are dealing with addiction.

Spofford has run a sober living facility in Derry since 2008 and opened a 20-bed inpatient facility in Canterbury last year.

After months of scrutiny over allegations of abuse and neglect, Lakeview’s owner decided to close the center, saying it would be too costly to keep it running and a moratorium on new patients.
