First permanent de-addiction centre for Juveniles

Recognizing the special need of Juveniles affected by drug/alcohol addiction, High Court’s persistent efforts have bore fruits. Delhi government joining hands with Society for Promotion of Youth and Masses (SPYM- a Delhi based NGO) has opened a first permanent drug de-addiction centre for juveniles at Sewa Kutir  near Kingsway Camp in North Delhi.

Prior to that there was no regular drug de-addiction centre for juveniles in the city who take to drugs under distress and other circumstances. The centre has come as a ray of hope for such juveniles.

Society for Promotion of Youth and Masses had set up a detoxification-cum-rehabilitation centre at the auditorium of the Sewa Kutir complex. Government has granted the financial sanction for the construction of a kitchen, toilet and the conversion of the auditorium. Supreme Court judge was the chief guest, while Delhi High Court Chief Justice and High Court judges were also present during the inauguration.
