OBJECTIVES OF THE CENTRE
Period and Cost of Internment.
The recommended period is a full six (6) weeks i.e. 42 days. Please phone the centre to find out what the cost of this internship is. This includes 3 meals a day, counselling, one-on-ones, accommodation, washing of clothes etc. It does not include cigarettes, cold drinks and other luxuries. These can be bought from the tuck shop run at the centre. It does not include medical cost – if needed; visit to psychiatrist, doctor and other medical emergencies will have to be paid for by the patient’s family. Medication prescribed by the house doctors for the patient must be handed over to the nurse for administering the required dosage on a daily basis. Under no circumstances may the medicine be given to the patient himself.
It sometimes becomes inevitable to admit a patient for less than the required period. This can only be arranged with the administrator in conjunction with the counsellor if at all possible. The time period and the fees will be adjusted accordingly.
If a patient needs more time than the recommended period, the extended time period must be arranged with the administrator with the recommendation of the counsellor. The additional fees required will be charged on a pro rata basis. There is a charge levied on the initial counselling session if the patient is not admitted. Money paid for the period of internment is not refundable.
The patient will have to pay for all drug tests done while he is at the centre. For long term admission please refer to the paragraph on LONG TERM ADMITTTANCE.
