Congressman Mooney Praises Sugar Grove Naval Site Announcement

Congressman Alex X. Mooney (WV-02) announced his support for a 95-bed substance abuse treatment facility to be located at the former U.S. Sugar Grove Naval Base in Pendleton County. 

“Since the decision to close Sugar Grove Naval Base, I have worked with federal agencies, state and local officials to transition this property to an entity that will be an asset to Pendleton County and will provide jobs to the region.

As I travel across West Virginia I am continually reminded of the need for more treatment options for addicts. I am thankful that Meridian Behavioral Health Systems and The Gersh Academy are partnering to bring these treatment services to my District and I look forward to the seeing positive impact this will have on people’s lives and the local economy”, said Congressman Mooney.
