A Provincial Youth Treatment Centre will be built on Salisbury Road in Moncton.

The provincial government made the announcement on Monday.

It will be a facility for youth aged 12 to 18, providing specialized mental health treatment in a home-like setting.

Design work on the centre will begin in early 2023, with construction expected to be completed by 2026.

The cost for this new facility is around $29.4 million.

The centre will be staffed by an interdisciplinary team, who will oversee therapeutic programs.

It will complement the eight-bed Restigouche Youth Unit at the Restigouche Hospital Centre in Campbellton. Established in 2018, the Restigouche unit offers specialized psychiatric care in a secure environment. It will continue to focus on forensic services and on supporting youth who require specialized care in a hospital setting.

The Vitalité Health Network operates the Restigouche Youth Unit and will also operate the Provincial Youth Treatment Centre.
