The Village Expands Their Treatment Services to Virgin Islands Youth

By Yolanda Gonzalez Malave, Program Assistant & HR Coordinator, Caribbean and Latin American Region 

The Village – Virgin Islands Partners in Recovery was recently presented with a check by Congress Woman, Stacy Plaskett, and Administrator to the Governor, Samuel Sanes in commemoration of our recent grant awarded by SAMHSA for the opening of the Youth and Family TREE program. This exciting new program’s purpose is to enhance and expand comprehensive treatment, early intervention, and recovery support services for adolescents (ages 12-18), transitional aged youth (ages 16-25) and their families, and primary caregivers with substance use disorders (SUD) and/or co-occurring disorders. These funds will allow us at The Village to extend our services by now providing treatment and rehabilitation to adolescents in the Virgin Islands.
