Kinghaven-01-300x160The provincial government announced one million dollars in funding for the newly redeveloped Kinghaven treatment centre in Abbotsford.

Abbotsford South MLA Daryl Plecas says the money is for a three year pilot project that would allow the facility to add to its drug rehab programs.

“Where people will be assisted in reintegrating into the community. And that integration will be focused on helping them become more employable, get employment, and ultimately become more productive citizens.”

The 40 year old facility has been redeveloped and can provide treatment for up to 62 men who are at risk of homelessness because of addiction problems.
