LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A new wellness facility that's brought controversy to East Texas has broken ground in Angelina County.
Seasons of Hope is expanding their current services to build a new woman's dorm.
The controversy started two years ago when people heard about them coming.
Director Carlene McMullen says once people realized it wasn't a rehab facility, the center started getting more community support.
McMullen says Angelina County is infested with drugs and Seasons of Hope is trying to change that.
"What we need is a solution. That's what we are trying to offer here is a solution. Not just a place to live."
