To fight drug addiction and raise awareness about its ill-effects, a PGIMER centre will organise a camp at a community centre in Bhaskar Colony, Sector 25, here on Sunday.


The camp - to be organised by the Drug De-addiction and Treatment Centre of the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) - is aimed at increasing awareness about treatments available for drug addiction in rural areas.   During the camp, a team of experts will check patients between 10am and 1pm. Medicines will also be distributed free of cost. 

Persons with addiction to alcohol, opiods (doda, bhukki, injections) capsules, marijuana, nicotine and other intoxicants have been advised to visit the camp.
