CASA is a non-profit, non-governmental (NGO) community-based Substance Abuse Treatment Centre established in 2000 with the purpose of helping individuals and families experiencing substance abuse and related and other problems.
It is a non-residential facility and caters to children, adolescents and adults ages 10 and upwards who are experiencing difficulties with legal drugs such as alcohol and illegal drugs such e.g. marijuana, cocaine or other.
It initially started as a drop-in centre operating in the evening from 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm from an office in an area in Bridgetown. In 2003 as a result of the need for more space to cater to the needs of clients the service was relocated to the Corner of St. Leonard’s Avenue and Westbury Road in the parish of St. Michael which provided easier access.
CASA is committed to providing crisis intervention community-based prevention, treatment and rehabilitation service to persons experiencing substance abuse and related problems regardless of culture, ethnic origin, religion, age, sexual preference, disability or social status.
