Email News Alerts

Drugs, especially the resurgence of meth, may be driving Hubbard County's out-of-home placement costs of kids.

Hubbard County Social Services Director Daryl Bessler said his department had exhausted its 2012 budget by June.


"It's a difficult thing," he acknowledged. "Meth drug use, from what I'm hearing, has created some of the problem, why we're seeing more costs for out-of-home placements."
