VINCENNES, Ind. (WTHI) - The Samaritan Center in Vincennes has received grant funding from the state. The center provides recovery services for addicts. The grant money will expand the center's system of care. That's by adding a new position at the facility.

The new role will focus on where the center can make improvements to better help addicts recover. It will cover Knox, Daviess, Martin, and Pike counties.

Kara Klemann with the Samaritan center says, "It's amazing because now we can have one person who is identified as a go-to person. And that will allow us to then begin to really focus on our communities needs."

The funding will last two years. The center will receive $75,000 per year.
