A total of 600 homeless drug addicts and drug dealers on Tehran’s streets were rounded up last week by police and sent to Fashafuyeh Rehabilitation Center  in Rey County south of Tehran, said the provincial police commander, General Hossein Rahimi. “Similar plans have been implemented in Alborz, Sistan-Baluchestan, Gilan, Yazd and Qazvin provinces,” he said, IRNA reported. “Staff at rehab center, affiliated to the State Welfare Organization, screen addicts and those with viral diseases receive necessary medical treatment,” Rahimi said. Social workers and charities help refer some recovering addicts to non-governmental organizations which help them find jobs.
