Kuwait has launched a national campaign to fight drugs through awareness, control and treatment, in addition to providing sites for the treatment and rehabilitation of addicts in complete secrecy through the best national cadres with the help of international cadres.

The Cabinet has said, in a statement after its weekly meeting yesterday that the launch of the campaign comes to protect young people from this blight and its devastating effects on health, security and social aspects.

The statement indicated that the Ministry of Interior, in coordination with the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Social Affairs and Community Development, the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs, the Ministry of Information, the Ministry of State for Women and Child Affairs, and the Public Authority for Youth, have been assigned to implement this campaign.

The statement stated that the Council of Ministers had also decided to assign the Minister of Health to present the appropriate scenarios for the establishment of private clinics for the treatment of drug addicts. Those clinics must provide the best-advanced treatment methods, based on the government's interest and awareness of the serious risks associated with the drug scourge that contradicts the teachings of our true Islamic religion.

The statement also pointed to the government's keenness to support the efforts made by the Ministry of Interior and various state agencies in order to confront this scourge and contain its devastating effects on the individual and society.

The statement indicated that the First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sheikh Talal Al-Khaled gave a comprehensive presentation of all dimensions of this dangerous social scourge based on the statistics and data on drug victims of deaths and addicts. He also provided statistics on the seized quantities of narcotics and explained the methods used to smuggle and promote them inside the country.

He added that Sheikh Talal Al-Khaled also presented the ministry's plan to develop efforts to eradicate narcotics and psychotropic substances, treat and rehabilitate addicts and provide them with health care.
