WINSTON, Ore. – A sale is pending Thursday on a 400-acre property that could become home to a long-term, residential drug and alcohol addition rehabilitation facility in Douglas County.

The program, called Second Chance Ranch, will be an all-male facility that offers extensive aftercare and mentoring. 

It’s all in partnership with True North Star Ministries and the We Believe in Second Chances Foundation in Roseburg.

The property is located right outside of Winston.

Organizers said people can be in the program from six months to a year. They said they are working to house 150 men at the same time. They also said it will be a working ranch where the men will be learning how to work while learning skills to recover from addiction. 

"What we’re aiming to do is remove those barriers that are causing people to come back because of their initial desire,” said Jeremy Grogan, the director of strategic planning for the foundation. 

Program organizers said they will be paying more than $1.3 million if the sale goes through. Right now, organizers said they are lacking $50,000 for the downpayment, which is due Monday. They have a GoFundMe set up to help raise the remaining funds. 

The facility will take 90 days to complete once they recieve the right permits to start the build, they said.
