Narconon Nepal just expanded its already substantial drug rehab delivery capacity with a spacious fourth building complex, this one inside the city limits of Kathmandu. Among the 200 guests attending the grand opening ceremony on May 10th, 2014 were Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Krishna Bahdur Mahara along with the current and a former Police Chief of Kathmandu, former Army Chief General Rukmagat Katuwal, Narconon Nepal executive director Basanta Kunwar, and many other dignitaries.
This newly constructed group of buildings on the outskirts of the Nepal capital, nicknamed the Red House, are designed for the admission and intake of new drug rehab applicants, male or female, from throughout Nepal, Central Asia, and the world, along with delivery of initial withdrawal and the first of the Narconon life skills courses. This building is under the direction of Puja Kunwar, wife of Basanta. After completion the initial stage of the Narconon program, resident students then transfer to the the 100-bed residential treatment facility on Hubbard Peak, a mountain top one hour outside of Kathmandu, under the direction of Senior Case Supervisor Bibek Baniya.
At the inauguration of the Red House, Minister Mahara, complimented Narconon Nepal director Kunwar, saying that he “has made the nation proud.” Kunwar has a long history serving with the Nepali police, winding up serving as the Kathmandu Superintendent of Police. He became interested in the causes of drug addiction and the crime associated with it and began searching for effective drug rehabilitation. After discovering the methodology of the international Narconon network, he dedicated himself to creating not just a good rehab program, but a state of the art facility to be an example and training center for Central Asia. The Kunwars now have a large staff, many professionally trained in the United States and England.
Kunwar also expanded drug and criminal rehabilitation service to the Nepali prison system with Narconon’s sister program, Criminon. A Criminon graduate shared his success at the inauguration ceremony and asked the Prime Minister to expand this program throughout the country.
Basanta and his wife Puja have two other Kathmandu facilities in their expansive program. These include the Stone House which disseminates information about the Narconon Nepal program and its intended work throughout Asia. There is also the Green House, a unique complex of offices and dormitories where Narconon graduates can continue to live and attend school as well as serving as the base from which drug education services are delivered literally throughout the whole of Nepal. The Green House is under the direction of Mr. Animesh Singh.
“This is our great purpose,” said Basanta Kunwar to the assembled guests, “to reach out and take responsibility for reducing the drug problem not just for Nepal but for all of Central Asia. Please help us accomplish this high goal.”
