There is unified agreement across our health district regarding substance use support beds that IH is willing to fund.
This from Rona Park, the head of Nelson Community Services.
Qualified bidders are being sought to run what could be a treatment centre and Park says it doesn’t matter where it goes.
Park says it’s excellent news to be getting 16 beds, 8 for acute withdrawal and 8 for medium term support.
Currently patients need to travel to Kelowna or Kamloops.
