CTV NEWS - Scott Oake and family working to open women’s addictions facility in Winnipeg

A new women's addictions treatment facility could be coming to Winnipeg, in honour of a woman who helped increase access to addiction treatments in the city.

"It's relatively quick but there's a great need for it and we don’t want to waste any time,” said Scott Oake, who opened the Bruce Oak Recovery Centre with his late wife. "Women will come there to work on themselves and get healthy again and get back to their families, their loved ones, their jobs and society."

The centre will have a particular woman in mind when ground breaks.

It's being built in memory of Anne Oake - the mother of Bruce Oake and matriarch of the Bruce Oake Recovery Centre. Anne helped spearhead the men's centre and dreamed of establishing one for women.
