The law on the reconstruction of the sobering-up system is due to enter into force on January 1, 2021.
The head of the State Duma Committee on Federal Structure and Local Self-Government Issues Alexey Didenko told Zvezda about the importance of re-creating the sobering-up system, and also revealed approximate prices and explained how the cost for the services of such institutions can be added up.
Didenko stressed that the law will give the regions the opportunity to independently decide on the creation of sobering-up facilities in any form.
“The bill appeared because the program of compulsory guarantees at the expense of the compulsory medical insurance does not provide treatment for those who are intoxicated and have lost the ability to somehow move. It's the same problem that people freeze on the street, get injured, their limbs are amputated,”he said.
The official said that one night in a sobering-up center will cost on average 1,500 rubles, given the established practice. The very procedure for payment will be established by the government.
“This is a very rough estimate. Pricing varies by region. Anything can be included in this price: medicines, electricity, and washing powder. Regions have different situations. You have to pay the person who works there as a nurse. Electricity, heat should be there? Should the bed be with clean linen? Why should everything be there for free? " - explained the deputy.
The MP said that the reconstruction of the sobering-up system in the country is necessary to preserve the life and health of people.
“Let's say I'm a policeman, I came, the doctors came, they said that everything was all right. Where should I take him, it is minus 40 degrees outside, he cannot answer where he lives, where he was going, he has no documents with him. This is a serious problem related to the life and health of citizens,”Didenko said.
We will remind, earlier it was reported that the law on the reconstruction of the system of sobering-up centers in the country should come into force on January 1, 2021. The State Duma plans to adopt it in the second and third readings by the end of this year.
