Canada : New Addictions Treatment Beds In Indian Head.

Residents of southern Saskatchewan will soon have better access to inpatient addictions services through Pine Lodge Treatment Centre in Indian Head.

As part of a record $402 million investment in mental health and addictions in the 2018-19 budget, $467,000 will be provided for 10 new treatment beds.

This investment will help Pine Lodge reduce wait times, providing people across southern Saskatchewan with better access to inpatient addictions services, Health Minister Jim Reiter said. This aligns with our government's commitment to increase mental health and addiction supports across the Province.

Pine Lodge Treatment Centre is a community-based organization that provides addictions treatment services. Pine Lodge has a total of 33 addictions treatment beds, now that the 10-bed expansion is complete.

This 10-bed increase at Pine Lodge will be a very positive factor in our ability to provide services to residents of Saskatchewan dealing with addiction, said Foster Monson, Executive Director of Regina Recovery Homes Inc. which operates Pine Lodge. I appreciate the Government of Saskatchewans understanding of mental health and addictions and their commitment to providing the supports patients need.

The Government of Saskatchewan is committed to improving access to services for people with addictions challenges. Mental health and addictions services received $402 million in funding this year, an increase of almost $30 million. These investments support the provinces 10-year Mental Health and Addictions Action Plan.
