These centers would provide essential facilities to individuals struggling with drug addiction, ensuring their access to effective treatment and rehabilitation.

He also emphasized the need to engage paralegal volunteers through the network of the Tripura State Legal Service Authority.
Furthermore, Chief Justice Singh stressed the importance of establishing de-addiction centers with necessary facilities in sufficient numbers to cater to individuals already addicted to drugs. These centers would facilitate easy access to treatment and rehabilitation, offering support to those seeking recovery.
