  1. Has Malaysia's antidrug effort been effective ?

    Article - En anglais

    It is a common belief that a massive effort in law enforcement, preventive education and rehabilitation will result in the elimination of a country's drug problem.

    Based on this premise, Malaysia in 1983 implemented such a multifaceted anti-drug strategy, and the results of a 1987 study by the author suggested that Malaysia's effort had begun to contribute to a steady decrease in the number of identified drug abusers.

    Although the number of drug-addicted individuals declined, the country's recidivism rates were still high.

    Because of this high relapse rate, Malaysia expanded their rehabilitation effort and developed a community transition program.

    In order to determine the impact of these changes on the country's battle against drug abuse, a follow-up study was conducted in 1990.
