The cost of detox increasing
WILLMAR - When an intoxicated person gets taken to detox to sober up, county taxpayers pay the price.
From 2001 to 2004, Kandiyohi County paid a total of $607,824 for detox services, or an average of $151,956 a year.
That bill will be higher this year, not because more people are using it, but because the daily cost of operating the local detox facility is increasing.
