A drug abuse treatment program in Fairfax County that Virginia officials are seeking to shut down was cited for numerous violations, including failing to report the rape of a client promptly, according to state documents.

In a letter dated Jan. 29, the Virginia Department of Mental Health, Mental Retardation and Substance Abuse Services said, among other things, that "Child Protective Services {was} not contacted promptly after {a patient's} disclosure of rape."

The letter, sent to Straight Inc. to explain why the state denied renewal of the program's licenses, said the rape, which allegedly occurred two years ago, was disclosed March 28, 1990, and reported to Child Protective Services on April 27, 1990.
