The Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment (MSJE) has taken an initiative to establish a Drug Abuse Monitoring System (DAMS) so that data on help seekers at centres funded by the Ministry is collected in a systematic way. As a centre funded by the ministry, your participation in this exercise is extremely valuable. You are required to submit a form online for each new patient seeking treatment/rehabilitation/counselling (for alcohol or any other drug) at your centre.

The proforma is simple and requires minimal training.Each item in every section has the possible answers/ responses provided which has to be selected as applicable. The responsible/ designated person at each centre will use the online system to submit the forms. Information thus gathered is intended to monitor drug using trends with time; equip the functionaries at MSJE to plan and implement prevention, education programs for drug users at all levels (State, District, Zone level).
