It's expected the facility will initially have room for 10 men and 10 women, with the possibility of expansion, and different levels of treatment offered. The Society is looking at purchasing 10 to 12 acres of rural land outside of the municipality, away from "temptations" in town.
In addition to Northern Health, the facility has the support of local, provincial and federal governments, and has secured financial support from several oil and gas companies. So far, 25 per cent of its expected $5 million in capital costs has been raised.
$20 memberships into the Society will also be available at the open house. A members only AGM will be held at 7 p.m.
