PS33 - Shamshuipo Centre


The rapid increase in the number of psychotropic substance abusers attracted much public attention in mid-80s. PS33 was established in March 1988, which became the first centre that provides non-residential detoxification and counselling services for psychotropic substance abusers. We have started to provide anti-drug programmes and workshops for the schools in Kowloon West District since 2002. In 2010, PS33 was re-structured and divided into PS33 - Tsimshatsui Centre and PS33 - Shamshuipo Centre.
