SCORES OF MEN AND WOMEN wore another hat – and with an attitude – last Monday evening as they put their heads into the fight against addiction in women.
It all happened at the Choice Rehab Centre for Women’s Hattitude Party at Hilton Barbados.
Director of Choices, Angela Springer, said that the aim of the Hattitude Party was to raise funds for the centre to continue to operate the free counselling room for women who are involved in any form of addiction, including substance abuse and gambling.
Springer said the centre was opened five years ago, and currently functions with three professional counsellors who work on a voluntary basis.
