In 2018, Collier voters approved a sales surtax that would fund a desperately needed new $25 million Central Receiving Facility managed by DLC to help address the mental health and addiction crisis.
Since then DLC, the County and advocates have worked tirelessly toward the goal of building this facility – deemed the No. 1 priority in Collier’s mental health services strategic plan.
Collier Commissioners will vote in February on the location near DLC. A ‘no’ vote, would delay the project, cost taxpayers and result in lives lost, delays in treatment and a diminished community well-being.
