DENVER (KKCO/KJCT) — A substance abuse residential program run by Mind Springs is one signature away from getting an extension from being forced out of its current location.

The Colorado Senate unanimously passed a two-year extension for the Women’s Recovery Center that operates out of the Grand Junction Regional Center campus. It already unanimously passed in the House.

Last year the state legislature voted to close the facility this coming summer, to save millions in operating costs at the aging facility.

But Mind Springs hasn’t been able to find a new home and asked for the extension.

It still needs to be signed off on by Governor Hickenlooper.
