New Detox and Addiction Treatment Centre in Winnipeg Opening
A new detox and addictions treatment centre is set to open later this month in June 2014. The River Point Centre has worked to create an additional 70 beds for treatment in the metropolis hub of Manitoba. The centre will be able to offer non-medical detox or withdrawal management, addiction and substance abuse awareness, intensive day programs, residential (inpatient) rehabilitation, and temporary housing for those affected by substance abuse. The site location, 146 Mangus Avenue, was previously a seniors care facility. The building is being renovated to give it a second life like the clients it will be serving.
