MOSCOW, August 20. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has ordered support for the non-governmental organizations tasked with rehabilitating users of drugs and psychotropic substances.
The regulation, published on the Russian government’s website on Thursday, establishes rules under which the respective socially-oriented NGOs will be provided with subsidies from the federal budget.
The measure will allow increasing efficiency of the NGOs activity and preventing violation of the legislation in the sphere of civil rights protection. The regulation "will help to make the rehabilitation centers and rehabilitation programs more accessible for drug users," the government says.
