    The government of Telangana has announced that they will be setting up one de-addiction center in each of the state’s 33 districts. These centers will help people who are addicted to drugs or alcohol by providing them with free treatment, yoga therapy, and counseling services. This announcement comes months after the Telangana High Court criticized the government for not opening de-addiction centers sooner.

    In February, the government announced that they would be opening new drug de-addiction centers in the state. This decision was made a month after the Telangana High Court criticized the government for not responding to a petition about opening de-addiction centers for six years.

    After Andhra Pradesh was split into two states in 2014, the remaining state developed 18 de-addiction centers in its 13 districts, while Telangana had none. In 2016, social activist Mamidi Venu Madhav filed a Public Interest Litigation in the court, asking the state to open de-addiction centers in all districts. Despite numerous adjournments, the state administration did not respond to the petition until now.
