“All in all, it proves that Selangor government state is always committed and often contributes solid support towards NADA, especially on prevention, enforcement as well as drug’s treatment and rehabilitation programs.

“The launching of i-Pulih application carries the hope for NADA and UPM to dig and polish the talent and true potential in clients by highlighting that talent in order to continue surviving and remain abstinent throughout the supervision’s phase,” he said.
