Health and Family Welfare Minister Punjab, Brahm Mohindra flagged off the 5 IEC Awareness Vans to make people aware about the de-addiction programme of state government. These hi-tech vans would provide complete information about the treatment facilities and ill-effects of habit making drugs and opiate products.
Disclosing this here, Brahm Mohindra said that State Government has launched these 5 IEC (Information, Education & Communication) Vans to sensitize people about the de-addiction programme as well as to motivate them to come forward to join anti drug-campaign of State Government. He said that we have designed the route map and all districts have been divided into five clusters.
Mr. Mohindra said that each van will visit interior areas of each cluster, covering at least 30 stations (Villages and blocks) in a period of one month. He said this idea is to reach at the doorstep of users and make them aware about the treatment and counseling facilities.
The Minister further said that free treatment is being provided to all patients at Government De-addiction centres, Rehabilitation centres and OOAT clinics. He said that the necessary instructions have already been issued in this regard to all the districts.
