Drug abuse on the rise in Saudi: study

by Habib Shaikh from Khaleej Times

Statistics by the Interior Ministry show that drug abuse increases by 17% every year. The study said that broken families as well as poor education are also reasons why many people in the kingdom turn to drugs ... “Some 90,000 people go to these hospitals on a yearly basis for treatment. I believe that three hospitals are not enough,” said Dr Abdul Aziz Al Ghuraib, a speaker at the Second Symposium for Reforms and Rehabilitation in Correctional Institutions.
