PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) - Pittsfield area residents recovering from alcohol and drug addiction are getting a new source of support.
The city's Sioga Club is reopening Monday nearly seven years after its former headquarters burned down.
Sioga stands for Sobriety Is Our Greatest Asset, and the new 7,000-square foot facility is open for use by any recovery group.
The new headquarters in a former restaurant is ready after a six-year renovation project that has been delayed by a lack of financial support and by vandalism.
It has two first-floor meeting rooms, one for up to 100 people.
President Douglas Marins tells The Berkshire Eagle that several recovery groups are ready to move in.
Sioga helps with recovery through counseling, substance-free activities and employment services.
