WINNEBAGO, Neb. (KTIV) -- Today, tribal, federal, and local officials dedicated a new Drug Dependency Unit at the Winnebago Treaty Hospital.
The new unit features eight rooms with sixteen beds for recovering alcohol and drug users. The building will be used for any person seeking help in or around the area of the hospital.
Nicky Solomon, a member of the planning committee, says there was a great need for the unit in Winnebago.
Solomon says, "It was very, very important to keep our people here and get them well here."
Officials say they hope the building will be taking in new patients soon.
A man who started an hour-long standoff in downtown Madison is in jail.
