This was seen by the Head of Yakita Sri Wahyuni when helping to deal with drug cases, Friday (26/2/2016).
When addicts come to YAKITA for programs basic, we help the detoxification process. After the detox is complete, they start the basic program they. The education they receive includes:
knowledge about drugs, addiction, recovery process, self-healing, problem solving skills, learning to take care of themselves, in addition to learning about the problems and related hazards drugs. We try to give them enlightenment to see their lives as addicts, and how drugs destroy lives and their relationship with loved ones they. It's no wonder that the YAKITA program has developed to attract addicts who want to recover, including from the outside. There is no holistic and comprehensive program yet like YAKITA.
In the basic program, addicts follow 6-8 sessions hours every day, except Sunday. Counseling can happens all day because peer counselors live inside, helps build abilities they solve problems, share, build closeness with them so that kinship is built with YAKITA staff and peer counselors assigned to each program. Addicts are encouraged to learn to express themselves and learn to 'feel' again - previously dulled by addiction. They also learn to be responsible for each other, build affection, care, altruism and empathy for others. This is the basis of philosophy YAKITA - to Recover, build Unity community, and for Service.
The region’s largest metropolitan areas are Greater Seattle, Washington, with 3.7 million people; Greater Vancouver, British Columbia, with 2.4 million people; and Greater Portland, Oregon, with 2.3 million people.
A key aspect of the Pacific Northwest is the US–Canada international border, which the United States and the United Kingdom established at a time when the region’s inhabitants were composed mostly of Indigenous peoples. The border — in two sections, along the 49th parallel south of British Columbia and the Alaska Panhandle west of northern British Columbia — has had a powerful effect on the region. According to Canadian historian Ken Coates, the border has not merely influenced the Pacific Northwest—rather, “the region’s history and character have been determined by the boundary”.
Definitions of the Pacific Northwest region vary and there is no commonly agreed upon boundary, even among Pacific Northwesterners. A common conception of the Pacific Northwest includes the U.S. states of Oregon and Washington as well as the Canadian province of British Columbia. This definition is often restricted further to include only the coastal areas west of the crest of the Cascade Mountains and Canadian Coast Mountains.
