Community based de-addiction is the need of today, but in India it is done inside the hospitals. Camp detoxification is one of the alternative approaches. The process of camp detoxification was divided into two phases. In phase I, arrangement for admission of 22 patients of drug and alcohol abuse was made, In phase II, 20 patients were admitted & were given treatment which consisted of pharmacological, psychoeducative groups & recreational & religious activities. All the patients completed 10 days treatment among them 18 patients were symptom free while 2 patients were having significant withdrawal symptom. The results of 10 days camp treatment showed better retention rate, good outcome & no use of illicit drugs during camp treatment.
