TAHLEQUAH, Okla. (AP) - The Cherokee Nation is opening a new $5 million substance abuse treatment center in Tahlequah.

Tribal officials will conduct a grand opening Monday for the new Jack Brown Center, which helps treat Native American youth for drug and alcohol addiction.

The tribe says the 28,000-square-foot campus includes five buildings and will serve up to 36 clients.

The campus features a recreation center, cafeteria, group therapy rooms and male and female dorms.
