The long-awaited Drug Rehabilitation Centre for women should become a reality in 2013, Marilyn Rice-Bowen, the president of the National Organization Women (NOW), said yesterday during a tour of the proposed location at Dash Valley, St George. “We have recognized that there is no such facility for women on the island and we feel that this matter should have been addressed with urgency,” Rice-Bowen told reporters. She expressed her gratitute to the Richmond Foundation, a mental health charity which is in the process of turning over the property to NOW. “We are hoping to start construction in March next year and I want to say publicly that we will welcome any donations,” she added, pointing out that substance abuse affected society on a whole.
