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. She said since no money is charged they are unable to open the centre  on a daily basis, so the sessions are now done by appointment.  (LK)
