Rehabilitation Centre for Victims of Torture (RCVTE)
(from IRCT directory, page 50)
RCVTE was established in 1993 to provide medical, psycho-social, and counseling services, as well as vocational and skill training for victims of torture. Psychological, psychiatric, and medical rehabilitative services are provided through a network of doctors and physiotherapists in the city, who take cases referred to them, usually at no charge. The aim of the center is to establish a functioning torture treatment and rehabilitative clinic where all of the staff involved will be trained in and become sensitive to the special needs of torture survivors.
