Attended by a number of inmates detained for drug related offences, among the notable speakers was Solace Asia CEO & Clinical Director Dr. Prem Kumar Shanmugam whom, joined by Ustaz Pirzada Ismail Ashraff Khan of Jabatan Hal Ehwal Agama Islam Negeri Sembilan (JHEAINS) and Tuan. Albert Tian, Deputy Director of the National Anti-Drug Agency (AADK Sabah Branch), proceeded to take the stage to educate the attending crowd on the efforts Solace Asia has taken for the past 6 years to combat addiction in the nation as well as the treatment methodologies and approaches used in the center to treat those in need.
