Recovery Center opening

I am not sure what to make of this winery/recovery center for addictions. On the one hand, treatment is much needed for the addicted. On the other hand, this looks to be a four bedroom five star resort with five star meals provided given the news article information. Is this a high end rehab center? Dunno. But if Dixon Terbasket has also been hired as a Syilx cultural co-ordinator and consultant I wonder if it is geared to FN's?? Dunno.
I'd like some more info on this place with regards to funding of a five star rehab facility. And is it just me or does combination winery /rehab facility for addictions seem like a contradiction in business plan? Then again.....who knows what Government's in search of votes are willing to finance.

I couldn't find anything on the site to say it was Government sponsored. Looks more like a posh 5 star recovery place where if you want that kind of service, you will pay through the nose for it. Private? Not sure.

If it is Government sponsored and publicly funded, its too posh. Nowhere on the site does it mention the cost. I would much rather see public funds on treatment centres (not fancy ones though) rather than promoting safe injection sites, which just keeps the addictions ongoing.

If someone wants to build and fund a high end treatment center, good on them. I am sure there are lots of "executive types" who can well afford a facility like this, and don't want to be in the public spotlight.

Do we need more Government funded treatment centers? You bet, but they will be built slowly and painfully, the same as anything else to do with the Government - no slam against any party, that's just the way it is. This facility will cater to people who can afford it, and that's fine.

Don't have any problem with the rich and famous getting rehab either. It was the Syilx cultural co-ordinator and consultant position that made me curious as to funding and who the intended clients would be at this five star six bed rehab facility. That's all.

Is there a different article that I missed? Where does the "winery" part of this rehab center come from? I looked through their website and yes it does look like a nice high end facility, I couldn't see anything about winery, vineyard, grapes, nothing? Just wondering if I missed an article about it?

This should answer your question:
Hol is also a grape grower, and will continue to operate his vineyard business separately from the recovery centre.

Hummmm ...no phone number? No email address? No contact information? No pricing? Something doesn't jive with facility. Time will tell.

Yup .. Missed the phone number. Email? I saw that but an actual email would be nice. Contact person? There are other red flags that I will leave alone for now. Hopefully this organization is legit and those who are really in need of these services are helped.

What's wrong with sending an email and directing it to a particular person? - the staff are listed.
