Heartview breaks ground at the former Ruth Meiers mens house
Posted 9/19/19 (Thu)
Heartview Foundation is a substance abuse treatment facility in downtown Bismarck that’s been serving the State of North Dakota since 1964. And today, they announced some groundbreaking news…
They have purchased the former Ruth Meier’s men’s shelter. Last year they started a capital campaign and are currently at $700,000 of the $1.5 million of their goal. The renovation of that building begins this week and it’s estimated at a six month construction period.
“There have been a lot of things happening nationally and in North Dakota around substance use disorders, with the opioid epidemic that is headline news all the time. We have definitely seen that impact in our facility as well,” said Kurt Snyder/Executive Director of Hearview.
In the last year alone they have served people in 38 of the 53 counties of North Dakota.
Snyder said they can have up to 20 people on the waiting list for residential treatment and would have to wait 4-6 weeks for someone to have access to a bed. So the need for help is high.
