An addiction recovery center in Rochester celebrated a major expansion Thursday.
SOS Recovery started on the Seacoast just over 18 months ago in response to the worsening opioid crisis in the region. Since then, the peer recovery center says it’s had over 2,000 visits from people seeking help.
SOS Recovery Director John Burns says the demand was overwhelming their old space which was just about 500 square feet.
On Thursday, the center celebrated an expansion to 2,000 square feet, which is being offered by First Church Congregational at a steep discount.
