Every newly admitted prisoner in the prison is medically examined on the very first day of his admission to identify his medical status so that prisoners having various ailments are identified and treated from the very first day of their admission. The persons identified as drug addicts are segregated from others and shifted to DAC for treatment. Once the prisoner undergoes through detoxification process for about 15 days, he is shifted to the Rehabilitation Centre being run with the help of NGOs. The drug de-addiction programme doubles up as HIV detection cum treatment programme. The rehabilitation process includes counselling, meditation and therapeutic methods to wean him away from his addiction habits.
