Family works to open drug rehab facility in E. Ky.

SHARPSBURG, Ky. (AP) — A family in eastern Kentucky is working to turn an old school into a drug rehabilitation facility for women.

Erica Williams told WYMT-TV ( that the facility in Bath County is in honor of her sister, Michele Williams, who died last year of a drug overdose.

She says her family plans to turn the former Bethel Elementary school into the Michelle Williams Life Skills Academy, a 12-step drug recovery program.

The family already owns the building and they have hired a director. However, they are still raising money to finish renovations that will bring the building up to code.

Meanwhile, they have applied for status as a not-for-profit agency and expect to get approval.

If everything goes as planned, Erica Williams says the facility should open in the spring.
