In Ho Chi Minh City an pilot project investment of $105 million in rehabilitation and vocational courses for drug addicts has paid off with 71 percent of them finding jobs and 13,700 rejoining their communities. (Thanhnien News) Is it encouraging to see countries treating the effects of drug addiction as a public health issue rather than a personal problem?


  1. It is a public health issue and it is encouraging to see a government recognizing something worthwhile and investing in it. Other governments of the world can use this as a basis for their budgets. There is hope for everyone.
