Phase Two Begins For Addictions Treatment Spaces Expansion

Released on May 3, 2023

St. Joseph's Addiction Recovery Centre Adds More Post-Treatment Spaces

Today, Mental Health and Addictions Minister Everett Hindley announced twelve more post-treatment beds will be opening at St. Joseph's Addiction Recovery Centre in Estevan.

The new beds are part of Phase Two of the Government of Saskatchewan's commitment to add 150 spaces to increase access to treatment and recovery services for people suffering from addictions.

"These new post-treatment spaces will help Saskatchewan residents who have completed treatment and need follow up support," Hindley said. "This is an important step to help them on their continuing path to recovery and well-being, and we are pleased that St. Joseph's is a strong partner in this work."

The 12 new spaces are in addition to the 14 post-treatment beds at St. Joseph's that became operational at the end of March. With this addition, St. Joseph's now operates a total of 32 post-treatment beds, in addition to their 32 inpatient beds, and four pre-treatment beds.  

The spaces will be open to residents from across Saskatchewan.

St. Joseph's Addiction Recovery Centre was one of the successful proponents chosen through the competitive Request for Proposals (RFP) process initiated by the Ministry of Health and the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) seeking addictions treatment services across the continuum of care, including intensive outpatient services, inpatient treatment services, and recovery or transitional services.

These new spaces further the Government of Saskatchewan's commitment to add at least 150 more addictions treatment spaces to expand capacity beyond what is already available in the system. Negotiations are underway with other successful proponents from the RFP, and additional addictions treatment spaces will be announced in the coming months.

With the addition of these new spaces, Saskatchewan is funding 547 pre-treatment, withdrawal management/detoxification, treatment, and post-treatment spaces across the province operated by the SHA and third-party partners.
