(ABC 6 News) - The new Minnesota Adult and Teen Challenge treatment center in Rochester is officially open for business.

The ribbon cutting ceremony was held on Tuesday for the new facility, located off of Assisi Heights Drive. The facility can accommodate 60 long term clients, who are suffering from chronic addiction, and 40 short term clients looking for a 28 to 60 day program.

But those with the center say, without a big donation, this opening day may not have come.

"We're just glad to be here and just so thankful for the community support," says Adult & Teen Challenge's Richard Scherber. "It's just overwhelming to see how this has all happened."

Minnesota Adult and Teen Challenge has 10 locations throughout the state. For more information, we've posted a link to their site here on our website. You can find it underneath featured links tab.
