TAHLEQUAH – The Cherokee Nation will break ground on its new, $4.3 million Jack Brown Center that will serve more Native American youth with substance and alcohol abuse problems.
The center, which is being relocated from its current Sequoyah Schools campus to a new building on the Male Seminary Recreation campus, will increase from a 20-bed to a 36-bed services facility.
The center is expected to offer an open campus style setting, new multipurpose recreation activities building and equine therapy program. Completion is expected in early 2014. The public and media can also tour the existing center as part of the Jack Brown Center’s 25th anniversary celebration from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, April 25.
