GURGAON: A 15-bed de-addiction centre at the Sector 31 Poly Clinic will be made functional from September 1. This centre will treat patients who are addicted to alcohol, drugs, tobacco and suffering from other behavioural issues. Doctors will be available 24X7 at the centre, officials said.
The centre aims to create awareness and educate people about the ill-effects of alcoholism and substance abuse and will also provide a range of community-based services for identification, motivation counselling, de-addiction, after care and rehabilitation. “It will also have psychological diagnosis along with medicines for the treatment of patients, for which I have instructed the centre to adopt psychological, family, group counselling and other counselling procedures. Free treatment will be provided at the centre and all types of tests and medicines will be free of cost,” said Dr Virender Yadav, chief medical officer in Gurgaon.
The centre will have two social workers or counsellors, four staff nurses, three ward attendees, three security personnels, two cleaning staff and one cook.
The outpatient department of the Civil Hospital in Sector 10 sees around two to three patients who need de-addiction treatment for alcohol, substance, tobacco and behavioural addictions, according to hospital staff. Of these, at least a couple require admission and frequent care, psychologists at the hospital said. However, these patients are being sent to private setup as the centre was not functional after the pandemic, officials said.
Though the district had a government-run de-addiction centre at the Civil Hospital in Sector 10, it got closed in September 2019 after its licence expired and wasn’t renewed. The centre was shifted from the Civil Lines building to Sector 10 in July 2019 to make way for renovation of the former.
