Ras Al Khaimah - 10 families in UAE seek help with youth addiction

Thank you for reading the news about 10 families in UAE seek help with youth addiction and now with the details

Aden - Yasmine El Tohamy - The department does not only help with the treatment, it also focuses on the post-treatment stage to avoid any relapse.

As many as 10 families have approached the Anti-Narcotics Department of RAK Police to help their children get rid of drug addiction and receive treatment without any legal action.

These 10 cases were part of 22 addicts that the department did not refer to the public prosecution, and instead sent them to specialised centres for treatment and medical care, according to a senior official.

Col Ibrahim Jassim Al Tunaiji, director of the anti-narcotics department at the RAK Police, affirmed that no criminal lawsuit was filed against any of the
22 addicts.

"This is to support them and their families, and help them get rid of drugs and be good members of the society."

The move is in line with Article 43 of the federal punitive law whereby no criminal case shall be filed against any addict who, on his own or through a relative, approaches the department for help and treatment, Col Tunaiji pointed out.

The department does not only help with the treatment, it also focuses on the post-treatment stage to avoid any relapse, Col Tunaiji underlined.

"Once a youth is misled by a bad peer group or prodded by drug dealers and tries drugs, he gets hooked, and it isn't easy to give up the habit unless
he receives professional help," he said.

"Parents should always check the stuff their children are keeping, spare enough time to talk and listen to them, and avoid family disputes," he said.

Parents should be alert about their children isolating themselves, staying up late, and sleeping for long hours, Col Tunaiji pointed out.

"Seeking help at an early stage is the right first step to help drug addicts give up the addiction."
