Encouragement at Drug Rehabilitation Center

Encouragement at Drug Rehabilitation Center

One sector of society that is in dire need of encouragement and personal interest is those participating in drug rehabilitation. At the national drug rehab center, visits from personal family members are only allowed once every two weeks. Since those in the program were not allowed to leave the grounds to visit their families at Christmas, Family Care Indonesia volunteers--who regularly teach vocational classes and offer guidance counseling--made a special visit for the express purpose of celebrating Christmas with the rehab patients. The program, organized and enacted by FCI volunteers, included a special Christmas dance performance, music, games, presents for all and delicious snacks. The drug rehab patients were much cheered by the visit and responded warmly and appreciatively.
