On Tuesday, city of Tyler Planning and Zoning approved a five-year permit for Cenikor, a substance abuse treatment facility.
In the year and a half since its initial one-year permit approval, company officials said the center has impacted many lives.
They’ve had 485 people come through the doors of the small facility, which holds 30 beds, located on West Gentry Parkway. More than 230 patients are native to Smith County. Most have addictions to heroin or methamphetamine, and most are between ages 26 and 30, facility officials said.
