FRANKLIN (AP) — The Easter Seals, which runs drug and alcohol treatment centers, is breaking ground on expansion plans for a center in Franklin.

The nonprofit agency is working to offer new treatment services and create as many beds as possible for people struggling with substance abuse issues.

Last year, 321 people died of heroin overdoses in New Hampshire, the highest number in the state's history.

Gov. Maggie Hassan, state leaders, Franklin city officials, Easter Seals Farnum North staff, providers and clients are gathering at 11 a.m. Monday to break ground on the expansion at the center in Franklin.
