Ground broken for new state-run mental health center in Gowanda

A new mental health treatment is destined for Gowanda.

The Buffalo Psychiatric Center’s new $1.5 million Zoar Valley Recovery and Treatment Center will be located at 49 S. Water St. in the village.

Local mental health advocates Tuesday joined officials from the state Office of Mental Health, the psychiatric center and the Village of Gowanda for a groundbreaking ceremony at the site of the proposed facility.

The project has been described as a state-of-the-art behavioral health facility.
