The major project of the Social Front, rehabilitation centre for substance abusers, it was established on 21st September 1987. It is situated in a quiet and peaceful surrounding at Durtlang, about 10 kms. from the heart of Aizawl. Functioning under a Director at present there are 25 staff working under various capacities. We are proud to say that this is the only Rehabilitation Centre that furnishes three separate units for the patients i.e., Detoxification Unit, Rehabilitation Unit and After Care Unit. But these units still needs infrastructure developments. A new 25 bedded wing for women patients has been recently installed and the same was inaugurated on the 12th of September 2000 by the Synod Moderator Rev. K. Lungmuana. The new wing started functioning in the month of October, 2000. A lady counsellor, a staff nurse and two IV Grade staff have also been newly recruited.
Therapy is administered to the patients through three foundational approaches : Christian Approach, Psychological Approach and Physical Approach. These foundational approaches are used in personal and group counselling, work therapy, physical exercises, games, worship and Bible studies.
After several years of experimenting with different approaches of administration, management and care we can now say that the Synod Rescue Home has finally settled down to a well patterned and organised system of functional setup. In the mean time much work needs to be done for strengthening the infrastructure. Work is also in progress for the same among which mention may be made of the construction of a new After Care Unit, new Director’s quarters and Staff quarters.
