FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) - A sobering center to help people with alcohol addiction in San Juan County is on track to open in less than two months.

The Daily Times in Farmington reports (https://bit.ly/1UjqQh8) that the facility is scheduled to begin operations March 1.

County officials say the sobering center is being built to fill a gap left by the Four Winds Recovery Center.

The center is closing a detox center and will offer residential and outpatient substance abuse treatment.

Four Winds Recovery has long been the only detox center in the county.

Center officials say they will keep the detox facility open until the sobering center launches.

San Juan Regional Medical Center, the city of Farmington and Presbyterian Medical Services all worked with the county to open the sobering center.
