Our Service Idea

In order to carry out the decision of the Ministry of Justice against the drug offender, a Drug Abuse Treatment Center is established in the north, central, south and east regions. As a result, the Taitung Drug Abuse Treatment Center that shared the same location with Taitung Prison has moved to here effective 1-Oct-2006. This Center is under the supervision of the Ministry of Justice. There are four departments and four offices. The departments are the Counseling Department, the Social Department, the Treatment and Protection Department and the Hygiene Department. The offices are the Administration Office, the Human Resources Office, the Accounting Office and the Statistics Office. They combine the resources from the medical workers, social workers, and psychological consultation workers to conduct the treatment of drug abusers. In the process, the abusers can give up drug addiction both physically and psychologically, as well as remove the hazards of drugs.


In order to help you understand the importance of the life of your children, provide them the support and warmth of family, and to become the main driving force of giving up drug habits, we provide the following services:
