Guam - The Latte Treatment Center joins the Guam Memorial Hospital in receiving accreditation from the Joint Commission.  Latte is contracted by the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse to provide residential and day treatment services at an adult residential group home in Yigo and a therapeutic group home for kids in Tamuning.

In July members of the Joint Commission were on island for a site visit. According to Joint Commission Behavioral Health Care Accreditation Program Executive Director Dr. Mary Cesare-Murphy achieving accreditation demonstrates Latte Treatment Center's commitment to provide high and safe quality care. 

The Joint Commission was founded in 1951 and is dedicated to continuously improving the safety and quality of the nation's health care through voluntary accreditation. The accreditation is for three years.
