State Closes Substance Abuse Facility

KSAL StaffAugust 21, 2014

A Kansas state agency has shuttered a Wichita group home after regulators say they found improperly stored medications, rodent infestations and unlicensed staff members.

The Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services on Tuesday ordered the immediate closure of the Atishwin Institute. The state also revoked the license for the substance abuse treatment group home.

The facility has 35 beds and was assisting 25 residents when it was closed.

The agency says the institute was noncompliant with federal regulations through the violations. Inspectors also say they found disconnected smoke alarms.

The institute has 15 days to request a hearing over the license revocation. The agency is helping to relocate the residents.
