Duluth, MN (NNCOW.com) - A century–old mansion in Duluth's East Side has been home to a music conservatory headed by Franciscan Sisters for decades.

Now, it's ready to house up to 24 women on their road to recovery from addiction.

The Center for Alcohol and Drug Treatment celebrated the grand opening of the new Marty Mann House Thursday in the former Prindle Mansion on Greysolon Road.

Marty Mann House is a residential treatment program which provides support to women as they make the transition from drug and alcohol treatment to living within the community.

According to the CEO of the Drug Treatment Center, Gary Olson, the new location will provide more women with the stability and resources they need on their road to recovery.

"To be able to add those 12 beds is going to mean up to 100 more women a year are going to be able to access treatment here," said Olson inside the breathtaking entryway of the former Prindle Mansion.

Olson says the new location will allow the Center to serve twice the women the previous location on Eleventh Avenue East handled.
