A special ground breaking ceremony will be hosted on Friday for a new Recovery Centre in Siksika Nation.

It's a 75-bed facility which will offer a supportive and compassionate space for individuals on their journey to recovery.

The centre is located on the east end of the reserve behind the Buffalo Rock building and according to staff with the nation, represents a huge step forward in the community's commitment to helping battle drugs and alcohol.

StrathmoreNow will provide you with additional details on the ceremony on Friday.
