Drug Treatment and Rehabilitation Centers

WADAN had centers funded by the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs, U.S. through the Colombo Plan drug treatment programs for men, women and children in Badakhshan, Farah, Ghazni, Helmand, Herat, Kabul, Kandahar, Khost, Kunar, Logar, Maidan-Wardak, Nangarhar, Paktia, and Zabul Provinces. Some locations offer residential care; others treat clients in their homes. Centers for women all have programs for the women’s children to receive basic care and educational skills while their mothers are treated. In areas where there are no inpatient services for women, home based treatment and counseling is made available to women. Outreach components offer community education regarding the dangers of using illegal drugs and misusing prescription medication as well as growing poppy and trafficking in illegal substances.
