Drug addiction is a common issue for both developing and developed countries. In Malaysia we have been battling this for the last two decades to a certain degree of success with our strict penalties.

When I was in the US for my studies, it is also a very common and wide spread problem and the problem persists till this day which can be vouched by the television series we watch on the tube such as CSI.

The good news is in Michigan, USA; there is a drug rehab center called Stone Hawk where they treat both drug and alcohol addiction without the use of any other form of medical drugs or medication. This well equipped center is run by people who have experienced this issues for themselves in their own lives which is truly amazing in my opinion. In their wonderful program, their objective is to help those who have gone through and so to speak graduate to pursue normal lives.

I can't imagine a better effort being done to help people with this addiction and perhaps in Malaysia we should follow their example on how to set up a drug rehab. Do pay their site a visit especially to read up on very informative articles about this issue.

I wish there will be more people like you who can talked about addiction without sneering.

I hope this post is your view about addiction in Malaysia, not because you're being PayPerPost!

Wish you all the best. Great layout you got here.

Hi there Noor... yeah it is my sincere take on addiction here in our beloved country. At times paid post does gives us an opportunity to speak our mind too on the subject and this was mine. :)

Thanks for visiting!
