This three-storey building is located adjacent to the existing facility allowing the original to operate until the new facility is complete. The project features drug and alcohol detox facilities, in-patient rehabilitation, offices, a central courtyard, and public meeting spaces, transition units, youth detoxification, family units and shared support spaces.

The replacement facility will consolidate resources for treating drug and alcohol addictions in the Yukon.

This design was created through a collaborative process with the Yukon Government Highways and Public Works Division and the Alcohol and Drug Services Division. The process also engaged key stakeholders and user groups who's feedback influenced design elements such as First Nations’ cultural sensitivities, minimizing an institutional feel and increasing connections to outdoor spaces.

This project was done with Thibodeau Architecture + Design and Kearns Mancini Architects.
