Rehabilitation for former drug abusers set up
Kakarvitta (Jhapa), Sept. 2: A rehabilitation centre has been established with the objective of giving rebirth to the people caught into the world of drug abuse.
Named the Nawayatra or New Voyage, the centre has been established by the local youths of Mechinagar-10, according to its Chair Arjun Rai. The number of drug abusers in and around Kakarvitta, on the border with neighbouring Indian market has been on the rise with easy access to the drugs they want across the border.
Especially boys and girls between 14 to 15 years are usually trapped into the bad habit of abusing drugs, says Rai, who himself is a former drug abuser. Former drug abusers like Mr Rai from Mechinagar, Bahundangi and Birtamode have jointly established the centre.
The centre has been inaugurated with a capacity for 40 people and will include counseling and treatment service. RSS
