Despite all the efforts and solutions to prevent and control addiction, the country has failed to achieve the desired results, said the head of the State Welfare Organization on Wednesday. “The prevention-treatment-rehabilitation cycle has not been functioning in a systematic and efficient manner,” Anoushiravan Mohseni Bandpei said at the 10th International Addiction Science Congress that opened in Tehran on September 14, reported. Minister of Labor, Cooperatives, and Social Welfare Ali Rabiei singled out mental disorders and the gap between people’s expectations and the reality of life as the most important reasons behind the escalating rate of drug addiction.
