The mentally ill person is brought to the Anbagam Rehabilitation Center and given a bath, hair cut and a shave to bring them back to a civilized state. Then, the patient undergoes a thorough examination by the doctor who immediately charts a rehabilitation plan. The patient is then provided with food and shelter with the supervisor guiding him to get used to the center and other inmates. As per the protocol, Anbagam works in tandem with the local Police who are informed every time a new inmate is brought into the center.
