These new beds are part of government’s commitment to increase access to detox beds and services across the province and are the first detox beds to be made available in southeast & east central Saskatchewan.

Mental Health & Addictions Minister Everett Hindley says this an important announcement for residents in the Yorkton & surrounding areas.

Bruno’s Place coordinator Angela Chernoff says the $335.000 in annual funding will enable Bruno’s Place to hire a case plan manager, and to move forward with providing client programming in our community centre.
