KALININGRAD, June 25 (Itar-Tass) - A Social Rehabilitation Center for drugs addicts has opened in Kaliningrad on Tuesday. The Center called Bolshaya Polyana (The Big Meadow) was created on the basis of the Orekhovo Social Rehabilitation Center.
Regional social development minister Anzhelika Maister said that the Center was created for purposes of comprehensive assistance to drug addicts, who want to give up drugs, in the framework of a regional program on measures against drug addiction and drugs trafficking.
On Tuesday the Center has welcomed a first group of twenty patients. A course of treatment is intended for 8-14 months. "We realize that problems which prompted our patients to take to drugs are different, and therefore, every patient needs an individual approach," the regional minister said.
Upon completion of the reconstruction and opening of the main hospital block the Center will be able to admit 50 patients at a time.
Over the past five years the number of lethal cases among drug addicts poisoned by drugs and other psychotropic substances has sharply dropped. Experts have also seen a steady decline in the number of drug addicts registered at city health service establishments.
