Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse is in the same predicament as many GovGuam agencies: the agency is behind in vendor payments.  In a court-ordered submission today, Mental Health submitted a list of vendors that are owed for contracts they have with the government. 

Among them, Latte Treatment has only received $158,000 of an $800,000 contract.  The Salvation Army is still owed $263,000 in local money and another $48,000 in federal funds.  Sanctuary is owed more than $340,000, while Oasis Empowerment Center is owed $308,000.

The department hasn't made payments in several months on contracts it has with Guma Mami and catholic social services.
