Bathinda gets another OOAT centre

Share This

Bathinda, May 6

The state government started an OOAT (Out-Patient Opioid Assisted Treatment) clinic at Virk Kalan village in the district on Wednesday to meet the increased inflow of drug addicts at the existing centres.

Following restrictions on the movement of people and intensive vigil, the drug supply chain has been choked, resulting in increased registrations of addicts at OOAT clinics in the state.

In Bathinda alone, 1,693 new addicts got themselves registered at the six OOAT clinics, besides thousands visited the OPDs at government-run de-addiction centres.

The OOAT clinic at PHC, Virk Kalan, is the seventh such facility in the district. — TNS
