There is a push by I believe Bridges to establish a Youth Recovery House within the city. Right now it's at the stage of gathering support from governments, etc.

My bet is when it gets to the point of being more public we will see it is going into Rutland, probably at McCurdy and Rutland Rd. That was the previous location for the Freedom's Door complex. It didn't get funding because the provincial government's agenda changed to fund youth related support services instead of adult men. Freedom's Door already had the zoning changed by city council so there is nothing blocking this as far a zoning. (Just my opinion.)

If its truly a recovery home, it should not be in a residential area, or near schools or rec. facilities, etc. It should be in a remote area which can fully focus on recovery. Having this type of facility in an urban area is not fair to the residents or business owners. There will always be the shadow of a previous lifestyle and the temptation to go backwards. This will eliminate alot of career criminals trying to take advantage of a service meant to rehabilitate. We don't have to re-invent the wheel here, look at what is working in other programs. You would not put an alcohol detox ctr. in a neighbourhood that had bars and liquor stores.

My understanding was that this was going to be somewhere for "Recovered" addicts to live. Not a recovery center.
The next step for them so they can have somewhere to live while they find jobs, work etc.
Sometimes after doing the Recovery house they have a difficult time finding that.

Then, perhaps keep them in the recovery home, in a supportive environment, and release each one with their own mentor and sponsored job, and housing. If the system truly wants this to work they have to stop throwing money against the wall with the expectation that something will stick.

Maybe if they got a little more support from the general public instead of so much "not in my neighborhood".
