You need to get your facts straight ..dear. Tax dollars are used to pay for their methadone, soboxone and other drugs to keep the addicts addicted. As long as they can keep them on that junk they’re getting taxpayers' money. Why would they want them to get completely off of it? I’ll answer that...they don’t... because the owners would not be getting wealthy. So do your research dear. Quoting Fyi:


Jails are ran on tax dollars.. Recovery Centers are not. Educate yourself before you post an opinion.

People are getting the help they need. I miss the times when people were happy for others' success.

Doesn't he own a charter school? Another Bevin connection. Not a good connection to have in KY.

The best man possible for the appointment! Mr. Robinson has done more to help people in the state of Kentucky than any individual I know. I have witnessed first hand the results of his work. God bless and keep him as he continues in this great work of saving many many lives.

It really surprises me that he started out saying with faith he was going to help people - but now he’s getting rich off of their problems. I can’t believe anyone would want to be a part of this state administration!

OH GREAT!!! Someone that has and is getting wealthy from tax payers by giving addicts other addictive substances at the clinics that he owns. That’s really all Lawrence County and the taxpayers of Kentucky need. Another reason why Bevins needs to go and so does these so called “Recovery Centers” also. We are paying them to give them addictive junk and they require nothing from the addict as far as repayment. If they get them off of everything then there’d be none of these centers because tax dollars would not be supporting the owners. Lord help us all now.
