Westover Bruce Power

Bruce Power is providing funding to the Westover Treatment Centre’s drug and alcohol addiction recovery support programs in Goderich and Tiverton. Chris Mercanti, Manager of Community and Indigenous Relations at Bruce Power presented a cheque to WTC Executive Director Ron Elliott, and Mike McGilvery, Director of Recovery Support and Alumni Relations.

Bruce Power has announced a five year commitment to support drug and alcohol addiction recovery support programs through the Westover Treatment Centre (WTC) in Goderich and Tiverton, providing $25,000 annual beginning in 2019 and running through 2023.

Westover’s Recovery Support program is available to people who have completed the Substance Dependence, Co-Dependence, and/or Stage 2 Recover and Relapse Prevention Programs. Participation in these programs is highly recommended for continued support, self-care, and maintaining sobriety. Meetings are held weekly over a 26-week period in 11 southwestern Ontario communities, including Goderich and Tiverton.

"[Bruce Power believes] strongly that the people in our rural communities deserve to have access to the best care,” said James Scongack Executive Vice-President, Corporate Affairs and Operational Services. “For more than 30 years, Westover Treatment Centre has been a leader in providing high-quality care to clients, their families, and friends who have been affected by addiction," Scongack added.
