chandigarh, August 1

The Punjab Government will soon introduce urine test every six months for dispensing de-addiction drugs to check abuse.

Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh said this in reply to a Ludhiana youth's request for directions to Out Patient Opioid Assisted Treatment (OOAT) clinics to give 10 days of medicine at a time, as per the past practice, to avoid long queues for daily dose of medication. Due to this daily waiting time, he was getting late for work every day, the youth said. In response, the Chief Minister said his government would soon introduce urine test every six months to ensure that there was no misuse of the medicine. — TNS
