Nobody other than someone who has suffered from drug addictions and has taken rehabilitation themselves can understand the problems and the mental situation of a drug addict. Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt has always been open about his addiction and rehab procedure and now wants to help others going through same problems by setting up ‘affordable drug rehab centres’ across India.

It’s been almost a year now that Sanju baba has been freed from prison and has been smoothly transitioning back to his normal life. And he has also been openly talking about his de-addiction battle. He fell prey to drugs immediately after Mother India – Nargis succumbed to cancer and describes it to be the darkest phase of his life. But he has fought it and is now free from drug addiction and hence after going through all this, he really wants to help people going through such pain. Sanjay Dutt is now strongly looking forward to start up drug rehabilitation centres across India in association with the government to help people come out of the fatal addiction.

Hundreds of people in India go through drug abuse which is so fatal that it could lead to severe diseases like lung diseases, cardio vascular disease, strokes, cancer and mental disorders. And the de-addiction treatment and rehab process is very costly and not everyone can afford it. Sanjay Dutt was sent to USA for his treatment but it occurred to him that he was able to recover just because his family could afford it. So, Dutt wants to help everyone who can’t afford the treatment by setting up cheaper and affordable rehab centres.

That is a good comeback and a good cause, Mr Dutt.
