Former winery to become rehab centre - 2008-04-03
Wanganui Prisoners' Rehabilitation (Pars) manager Steve Treloar said yesterday that even though the centre was still very much in the planning stage they (the Wanganui Bible Chapel, a Brethren group) hoped to have it up and running within two years.
The former winery, part of the Holly Lodge complex in Papaiti Road, has several outbuildings including a former restaurant and some large sheds, he said.
The original historic Holly Lodge homestead was moved. The rehabiliation programe follows Scientology's Narconon programme established by church founder L Ron Hubbard more than 40 years ago for drug addicts in Arizona State Prisons.
