About
The 85,000sf addictions recovery centre, River Point Centre, provides a crucial service for urban and rural Manitobans struggling with addictions. The new state-of-the art facility was developed in consultation with the Addictions Foundation of MB, the Main Street Project, the Behavioural Health foundation, the Department of Housing and Community Development, Manitoba Housing, and community residents themselves.

MMP acted as Prime Consultant for the redevelopment of the 50 year old Sharon Home into the new centralized addictions centre for Manitoba. The centre has the capacity to accommodate up to 2,000 individuals annually for treatment and offers a range of services for patients including non-medical detox, an intensive day program, a treatment readiness program, and structured residential treatment. River Point Centre was built to LEED silver standards (in registration process) and was completed on schedule and on budget.

River Point Centre includes 30 transitional housing units which are available to Manitobans from both urban and rural areas. These units provide temporary housing for individuals who are recovering from addiction and need a short-term, supported living environment before returning home.
