Bridges of Iowa, a substance abuse treatment program, will open a women's wing.

The new program is supported by a $75,000 grant from the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines and a $50,000 grant from Prairie Meadows Racetrack and Casino.

Bridges of Iowa currently only provides long-term substance abuse treatment programs for men, and it saw a need to have a similar program in Des Moines for women.

A ribbon cutting will be held from 3 to 6 p.m. on March 12 at the facility, located at the Polk County Jail, 1985 N.E. 51st Place.
