TIMERGARA: A treatment centre for drug addicts at the District Headquarter Hospital has been non-functional due to unknown reasons for the last several years.

The health centre, consisting of two rooms, was constructed by Dir Development Project (DDP) at the hospital in Lower Dir in 1990 at a cost of Rs480,000.During a visit to the centre, the beds were found in a shambles, with a foul smell spread all over, and the venue presents a deserted look nowadays.

Member of Timergara urban council Alam Zeb advocate told this scribe that dozens of drug addicts freely roamed Timergara bazaar but the health centre meant for them had been non-functional for the last four years.

He said the number of drug addicts in Timergara was increasing day by day while the district administration ignored the matter. He demanded the provincial and district governments to make the centre functional as soon as possible. When contacted, the hospital’s Medical Superintendent Dr Anwar Zada and Deputy Medical Superintendent Dr Saleem refused to comment on the issue.
