Drug and alcohol rehab to close


The Diana Princess of Wales Treatment Centre is closing after 11 years

A drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre in Norfolk is being closed down.

The privately run Diana Princess of Wales Treatment Centre in Gimingham has failed in its battle to stay open since it went into administration last July.

Receivers say they will try to find new places for the 19 patients being treated there.

The centre was owned by ADAPT (Alcohol and Drug Addiction Prevention and Treatment Ltd) which also owns a centre in Somerset which closed in July.

Ian Carr, partner at Grant Thornton LLP and administrator of ADAPT, said: "We have tried to a secure a sale of the centre but this has not proved possible and the ongoing losses mean it is not possible to continue trading.

"It is a real shame that this centre, which has provided the rare service of treatment of drug and alcohol addiction for clients with a dual diagnosis, now has to close."

The administrator now intends to seek a buyer for the centre for an alternative use.
