The Bruce Oake Recovery Centre will be a long-term, residential treatment centre for adult males suffering from drug and alcohol addiction and will operate as a registered not-for-profit organization with charitable status. The Bruce Oake Recovery Centre will provide addiction treatment as well as the resources and skills necessary to successfully re-enter society. There is a significant need for a treatment facility of this nature in Winnipeg and Manitoba, and existing treatment facilities have waiting lists in excess of a month or more, the new centre will aim to significantly reduce the wait for treatment to those in need.
The Bruce Oake Recovery Centre program will be modelled after Fresh Start Recovery Centre program, an addiction treatment centre for adult males in Calgary, Alberta. Fresh Start provides comprehensive treatment program with a success rate more than double the industry average (this success rate is based on a client remaining clean and sober for at least one year after starting treatment). The program incorporates the Twelve Step Recovery Program with behavioural therapy, while ensuring clients take personal responsibility for chores as well as securing employment for their future.
MMP Architects is working together with the Bruce Oake Foundation and the community on the Bruce Oake Recovery Centre project. More information about the project can be seen on the community information boards below and at bruceoakerecoverycentre.ca
