Patients attending the Out Patients Departments (OPDs) of all community health centres, sub-district hospitals and district hospitals for de-addiction treatment are being provided free medicines, a spokesman said here today.
"No money is being charged for medicines for the treatment of drug addicts," the spokesman said.
The list of medicines being provided free of cost is as per the guidelines and recommendations of the PGIMER, Chandigarh, he added.
The indoor patient fee at the drug de-addiction centers is for food and other facilities and all medicines are for free, he said.
The state government last week launched a de-addiction campaign.
