Why Malaysians find effective and affordable rehab treatment for drug addiction at The Cabin Chiang Mai
Despite Malaysia’s harsh drug laws which include the death penalty, drug use amongst the Malaysian population, especially the young, continues to increase. In 1983, Malaysia declared its drug problems a national emergency and put in place strict deterrent measures and set up a series of military style rehabilitation units focusing on a “cold turkey” detox. By 1996, the government was forced to admit these measures had largely failed and that they, like most countries around the globe, were losing the war on drugs.
Whether it is illicit drugs (known as Dadah) or legal prescription drugs, the effects on the user, their family and the community as a whole, can be severe and sweeping. In spite of the health risks and dangers of drug use, nearly quarter of a million Malaysians are registered with the government as users, and the total number of drug dependent people is estimated to far exceed
this number. Besides the obvious costs and risks associated with drug abuse, Malaysia now has one of the highest incidences of HIV (among other infectious diseases) in the region, chiefly contracted through drug use. The cost to users, their family and friends and the community as a whole, is incalculable and resulting deaths and disability from drug abuse a crippling problem for Malaysia.
Attending a legitimate inpatient drug rehab, not just a detox centre, has been proven to be the most powerful and successful way to escape drug addiction and achieve recovery.
