Guam - The Guam Behavioral Health and Wellness Center has been filling some vacancies to comply with the permanent injunction. Director Rey Vega says the department has been hiring social workers, counselors, psychologists and psychiatric technicians from on island.

In the meantime he confirms that a request for proposal for adolescent residential services for drug and alcohol was issued two weeks ago.  As we reported the department and Sanctuary have been at odds for months about the actual cost to provide those services.  Sanctuary has said it will be forced to shut its doors on March 31st if the government doesn't pay the true cost for the services. 

Vega says he hopes sanctuary remains open and says he believes the parties will be able to resolve the differences before the end of the month.
