Staff Reporter

The Punjab Healthcare Commission (PHC) on Thursday sealed two drug-addiction treatment and rehabilitation centres over insufficient psychiatric, health and residential facilities, and also evacuated 26 patients being treated there. A spokesperson for the PHC said that the Commission’s teams conducted raids on four treatment centres and closed down two facilities including ‘Taha Tark-e-Manshiat Aur Nafsiat Centre’ and ‘Rehab Home’ in Faisalabad.
The teams also evacuated 14 and 12 individuals from the Centre and Home respectively prior to sealing the premises. He said that these centres were functional without the requisite human resource including psychiatrists, psychologists, doctors, para-medical staff and insufficient facilities like residential and emergency cover.
