The governor is directing the donation to the Open Door Recovery Center, which provides drug treatment for clients and their families.

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) _ Maine Gov. Paul LePage is directing $50,000 from his emergency contingency fund to a drug treatment center in Ellsworth.

LePage said Tuesday he made the donation to the Open Door Recovery Center, which provides treatment for clients and their families in Hancock, Washington and Penobscot counties.

Open Door provides treatment regardless of the clients' ability to pay.

LePage met last month with Barbara Royal, executive director, and two graduates of the program. Royal said the goal is to get additional donations to match the governor's contribution.
