A drug treatment and rehabilitation centre was established in March, 2011 by SPYM in collaboration with Department of Woman and Child Development, Government of NCT of Delhi at Sewa Kutir Complex. The programme offers a 50 + bedded facility for adolescent males in conflict with law under the age of 18 years and assessed to have a history of substance abuse and current substance dependence disorder along with other psychological and behavioural issues.
Children in conflict with law are referred by the Juvenile Justice Board for treatment and rehabilitation at the SPYM Centre in North Delhi. All the juveniles are being mandated to stay in the centre for the duration of 90 days initially and the further extension of period depends upon the status report of client and decisions made by the respective judicial authorities. The variation in length of stay is determined by severity of symptom profile, psychosocial stressors and assessment of functioning upon intake and admission and during course of treatment, etc. at the centre.
Plan provides support for the ongoing nutritional needs of 50 children registered at Sahyog de-addiction centre, Kingsway camp which includes their daily meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) and tea (twice daily). SPYM has been able to extend nutritional support to over 50 children who were regular inmates of the centre including those in the half-way homes.
