A program aimed at helping men with drug, alcohol and other addictions for 50 years is expanding its reach.
The Teen Challenge of the Dakotas recently broke ground on a new
building that will allow the program to help an additional 11 people at a time. Executive director Mike Gilmartin says the program has been trying to get a
new building for more than a decade. He says he expects the
facility should be open by late summer or early fall next year. The program was originally developed to help teenagers but now
also helps adult men. Patients in the program spend 16 months in the program.
