AAS is currently running six rehabilitation centres in Karachi. These rehabilitation units are comfortable and secure. Each area is monitored via security and surveillance systems. The facilities include fulltime, residential Primary Treatment Centres for adults and underprivileged children. In addition to this, we also operate aftercare residential units for those who have undergone primary treatment. These units help recovered clients to educate themselves, develop their skills, and find employment.
Children Primary Unit:
This Unit accommodates 20 children over a duration of three months to help them overcome their drug addiction. These children are provided a comfortable place to stay, clothing, nutritious meals, counseling, recreational activities and medical treatment without charge.
Children Half-way House:
This is a residential facility that accommodates 30 children over a period of 6 months to 1 year. Children who have participated in the Detoxification and Rehabilitation programme, and are on the road to recovery, lodge here and obtain education, vocational training and skill development.
This hostel accommodates 12 occupants. These are young men who have successfully recovered from their addictions, are in touch with their families, and are independently working and successfully overcome their drug dependencies.
Adult Primary Unit:
This primary unit accommodates 25-30 clients who are treated at a subsidized rate. Clients are provided a comfortable and hospitable environment, and undergo a 3-month rehabilitation and detoxification programme.
Adult Half-way House:
This centre accommodates around 12 adult residential clients, and 15 day-care clients. Here clients receive group therapy and counseling so they can successfully recover and lead drug-free lives.
AAS Ghar (Night Shelter):
This shelter can house 20 street children at a time. They can come in and have a good night’s sleep in a safe environment and in the morning after having a simple breakfast go up and about their normal routine. This way they don’t have to succumb to the many threats of abuse they might face on the street at night.
