Women’s Treatment Centre gets new accreditation

A women's addiction therapy facility has been received its three-year approval from the Commission in Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) International.

Premier and National Security Minister Michael Dunkley said the Women's Treatment Centre was awarded the top level of accreditation, valid through March 2017, in the categories of community housing and residential treatment.

Its community housing unit in Southampton, which can house eight women at a time, currently has four occupants.

The Centre also offers a 12- to 18-month intensive residential treatment programme at the Nelson Bascome Substance Abuse Treatment Facility, which can take 12 clients at a time and currently has six.

It has a further six clients in aftercare, and two who are in the process of being admitted.

The Women's Treatment Centre first won CARF International accreditation in 2009, Mr Dunkley added, with the latest approval marking “the second consecutive time that this facility has been surveyed by external surveyors, and granted the gold seal, the highest level for quality services”.
