The Cabin Chiang Mai – Where Kuwaitis find compassionate, effective and affordable rehabilitation treatment for drug addictionWhile Kuwait may seem like the last place on earth where you’d expect to find drug problems, a report released in 2000 estimated that approximately 1% of the population of Kuwait was presently addicted to drugs. Drug abuse and addiction is a problem that afflicts individuals in countries all over the world, and Kuwait is certainly not an exception. There is a real and understated drug addiction problem in Kuwait today – even though it may seem like this is a problem that only affects other countries with much looser codes of morality. So what exactly is prompting the surge of drug addiction in Kuwait? Many officials feel that the lack of ‘things to do’, paired with the strict Islamic ban on alcohol in Kuwait leaves residents bored – so they turn to drugs as a form of escapism. The drug problem has gotten bad enough that corpses have started appearing in hospital parking lots or deserted areas in major cities such as Kuwait City, Khaitan, Hawalli, Mangaf, As Salimiyah, Al Farwaniyah, Al Fahahil and others. Officials simply cannot ignore the growing problem of drug addiction any longer – yet there are few answers for those who are legitimately addicted and want help in Kuwait. Common drugs used among addicts in Kuwait today are hashish, heroin, cocaine and opiates – much of it smuggled in from surrounding borders. And while most users begin using drugs to liven up their weekends or at parties with friends – drug use can easily transform into an addiction. In the past, drug addicts who wanted to find help were actually classified as criminals. This completely discouraged the majority of addicts who wanted to get clean from ever seeking help – and, their families were often put in a precarious position of wanting to help them get off drugs, while still trying to preserve the family’s good name. Remarkably, a law was passed in 1999 to protect Kuwaiti residents with drug addiction problems. Instead of being treated as a criminal, addicts are now treated as patients. The law is a good step in the right direction, but since that law was put in place Kuwait has also seen a massive influx of families calling to receive treatment for drug addiction for their loved ones, and the rehabilitation facilities cannot seem to catch up with the demand. In addition, many of the Kuwaiti rehabilitation centres focus recovery methods on religion and faith, which is not necessarily effective for all addicts. The effectiveness of the Kuwaiti rehabilitation system is quite low, and after care for patients is lacking. Due to this, many Kuwaiti’s are now wisely seeking treatment abroad, and The Cabin Chiang Mai is one destination that is presently receiving an increasing amount of clients from the area.
