AKRON, Ohio — The former Boy Scouts of America headquarters on South Main Street in Akron could soon be home to a new addiction recovery center, according to News 5 media partner the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

The South Main Street building housed the Boy Scouts from 1980 until last year, when they moved to a larger space in Stow.

Interval Brotherhood Home Foundation Inc., or IBH, is set to buy the building to house their outpatient program as well as its REACH program. REACH stands for Recovery, Education, Accountability, Community and Hope. IBH's website said outcome studies show that 84% of participants remain sober while participating in REACH.
