The ODIC is a community-based facility for substance users. Outreach and Drop in Centre Project (ODIC) under the National Action Plan for Drug Demand Reduction (NAPDDR 2018-2023) under the National Institute for Social Defense, Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment has been implemented by United Voluntary Youth Council (UVYC) in Churachandpur district of Manipur. The ODIC is located at Thangzam Road, New Bazar, Churachandpur Town. 

The ODIC caters to individuals, particularly youth to who use various substances and those who have the least access to resources. ODIC is client-focused with an ultimate goal to prevent youth in the community to initiate substance use, also to help the current users to become sober by taking treatment. An ODIC is a doorway for substance users to a non-threatening and caring environment. It is a hub for all services, which substance users can access as per his or her need and convenience. The ODIC must be within close proximity of substance users and located in the hotspot area of the substance users. In addition to addressing health needs of the substance users, ODIC will support their right to treatment and care services that are respectful and non-discriminatory. Other activities necessary for substance users will also be conducted in the ODIC (like recreational activity, group therapy, individual counselling, family counselling etc.) The ODIC will also provide psychosocial support, a space for rest and recreation, as well as access to other substance users and OUTREACH WORKERS for support and care through mutual sharing of experiences.
