Starting this spring, Southwestern Community College will offer a substance abuse treatment certificate for employed human services professionals already in the field.

The certificate, which can be obtained within one semester, will allow professionals to gain the substance abuse-specific education required by the North Carolina Substance Abuse Professional Practice Board to pursue certification or licensure and skills they need to work with individuals trying to overcome addiction.


The holiday season is upon us.

For most, this time elicits fond memories of time spent with family. It likely stirs dreamy ideals of how this year will be spent filled with laughter, full of joy, and in peaceful surroundings.

For those living with a life-threatening illness – or caring for someone who is; however, the holiday season can be wrought with a host of mixed emotions. This time of year can pile on more stress to an already-stressful situation. You or your family may be feeling sad about not being able to celebrate the way you have in the past.


Thirteen Southwestern Community College radiography students are in the middle of clinical rotations at a variety of area hospitals.

Among those students are Carlea Cook, Jovy Phuong, Celina Guffey, Joe Cloer and Kelsey Apel of Franklin. Cook and Apel are assigned to Angel Medical while Phuong is at MedWest Swain, and Cloer is at Murphy Medical. Guffey is doing her rotations at Habersham Medical Center.


The WestCare Health System Board of Trustees today announced it has signed a memorandum of understanding to be acquired by Duke LifePoint Healthcare. The potential partnership will provide West- Care’s hospitals, Harris Regional Hospital and Swain County Hospital, additional resources to grow and strengthen their operations for the future.
