Sault Area Hospital (SAH) is set to open its Northway Wellness Centre, which will house the Residential Withdrawal and Safe Beds programme.
This initiative provides short-term care for patients aged 16 and above experiencing intoxication, substance withdrawal, or seeking help with relapse prevention.
The Safe Beds programme offers in-house treatment for up to 30 days to stabilise individuals with mental health and addiction needs in a community/home-like setting.
According to the hospital website, the facility’s construction was funded by Algoma Steel and Clark McDaniel of Williams & McDaniel Property Management.
The facility claims to enhance mental health and addiction care access for the community.
A guided tour of the centre is open to the public on the 21st of this month.
