    Anti-drug treatment is a long way to go. The purpose of establishing the Center is to assist inmates in quitting drug addiction. Based on the reasons for drug abuse in Taiwan and the personalities of the inmates, we integrate professional opinions to perform affairs in better ways. We also introduce resources for health, labor, and social administrations and proactively integrate professional counseling to develop the proper anti-drug treatment. We hope inmates can know the reasons and risks of repetitive drug abuse after the complete anti-drug treatment protocol, and understand the health damages caused by drugs and the effects on the families. Meanwhile, we hope they can learn how to seek help from medical institutions, social welfare agencies and employment services when it’s necessary to expand a new life. We devote ourselves to measures, including implementing diverse treatments, promoting family supporting programs, religious counseling and successful experiences sharing, to improve the success rates of anti-drug addiction.

    Recently, the Agency of Corrections, Ministry of Justice promoted “Scientific evidence-based anti-drug treatments for drug patients” to establish national guidelines for anti-drug treatments. We organize courses and invite professional teachers in accordance with the guidelines. We also cooperate with Drug Abuse Prevention Centers of local governments, the Taichung-Changhua-Nantou Regional Branch of the Workforce Development Agency, Ministry of Labor, Taiwan After-Care Association and non-profit organizations to help inmates quit drug abuse, return to their families and achieve being drug-free for life.
