Short description:
The Dr Idrice Goomany Treatment Centre is a grassroot NGO which came into operation in 1986 to reduce the incidence and prevalence of drug use in Mauritius through prevention, treatment and rehabilitation sessions. Over the years, our institution has helped around 6500 clients and their families in providing medical detoxification and counselling. Since 2004, we are engaged in Harm Minimisation Programme (NEP) and we collaborate with the Ministry of Health & Quality of Life to refer clients on the Methadone Substitution Therapy and by operating Needle Exchange Programme for out of treatment heroin addicts throughout Mauritius. We are also involved advocacy work in order to influence policy makers in their decisions.
