BENTON TOWNSHIP A mental health facility is taking on a new type of client.
Staff at Riverwood Community Mental Health Center in Benton Township began training this week to take over substance abuse treatment programs. Those services were formerly provided by the Berrien County Health Department.
According to the Herald Palladium, employees began work Monday, and substance abuse services will be offered starting next week. The change means a larger staff at Riverwood, and they have plans to open more offices in St. Joseph Township and in Niles.
