Collier Recovery Center Destroyed in Arson

EAST NAPLES, FL –

Investigators say a fire that destroyed an East Naples alcohol and drug treatment center early Monday morning was intentionally set.

The fire erupted at The Last Connection, located at 2275 Tamiami Trail East in Naples, around 4 a.m.

The center, which relies heavily on community donations, served as a daily meeting place for dozens of Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous attendees.

“Some of us don’t have family at all, and this is our family, so this is kind of like our house,” said Lynzi Villanueva, one of many attendees who visited the site Monday.

Investigators say there were signs of a break-in, and the culprit may have been caught red-handed.

“They apparently did have security cameras in the unit,” said Greg Speers, East Naples Police Department spokesman.

The center’s staff is working to determine where its next meeting will take place.

Anyone with information about the crime, is asked to call the Collier County Sheriff’s Office at (239) 793-9300.
