Rehabilitation centre inaugurated in Wardak
MAIDAN SHAHAR (Pajhwok): A 20-bed rehabilitation centre for drug addicts has started functioning in central Maidan Wardak province, an official said on Thursday.
The centre was constructed over 450 square metres of land by the Ministry of Counternarcotics at a cost of about 16 million afghanis, the governor’s spokesman said.
Attaullah Khogyani told Pajhwok Afghan News the facility took one year to complete, having 17 rooms, a boundary wall, a lawn and other needed facilities.
