Jamestown Center receives 90-day substance case suspension

JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) — A Jamestown human services center has received a 90-day suspension for substance abuse cases.

JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) — A Jamestown human services center has received a 90-day suspension for substance abuse cases.

The Jamestown Sun reports that North Dakota Division of Mental Health and Substance Abuse director JoAnne Hoesel would not comment on the problems that lead to the suspension.

Hoesel says the suspension only involves substance abuse cases and does not affect treatment for other mental health issues.

Department of Human Services superintendent of institutions Alex Schweitzer says the department needs look at how the center reviews cases and documentation.

Schweitzer said the substance abuse program currently serves 63 clients, and everyone who needs treatment will be served.

The center serves the counties of Wells, Foster, Griggs, Stutsman, Barnes, Logan, LaMoure, McIntosh and Dickey.
