According to Assistant of Anti-drugs Officer, Career Training and Vocational Branch, Department of Treatment, Medication and Rehabilitation NADA, Mohd Norazarizan Shah Azman says that variation of products sold during the exhibition are the output from clients’ efforts through vocational activities in PUSPEN.
“Vocational programs are the best platforms to enhance skill and creativity of clients in producing products based on food, handcrafts, stitching or agriculture.
“Indirectly, this method (vocational program) becomes a therapy for clients throughout the process of treatment and rehabilitation in PUSPEN,” he says while interviewed by AADK News’ crew at Exhibition and Sales of NADA Products in here.
