People seeking help for substance use challenges will soon have access to more treatment and recovery options as 100 new beds are added across the province.
BC’s Ministry of Mental Health and Addictions today announced $13 million in funding for not-for-profit and private recovery and treatment service providers to provide safe living environments where people can focus on their recovery journey.
CMHA BC is proud to support the administration of the funds in consultation with the Province and health authorities.
“This investment is such an important step toward a vision where more substance-use treatment and recovery supports are available at the right time for more people,” says Jonny Morris, CEO, CMHA BC Division.
“Following a rigorous and involved adjudication process, it is exciting to see such a strong pool of grantees announced today, and we are looking forward to continuing our partnership with the Ministry of Mental Health and Addictions, our partners and the grantees during the coming months.”
