Bangladesh with a population of 150 million faces many challenges including drug that
has become an issue due to its geographical location, poverty and illiteracy. Although
there is no precise figure of the drug dependant people, but is estimated around 4.0 million
people mostly youths are dependant to some from of drugs, and increased trend among all kinds
of people is alarming. Comparing to this situation there is still very few treatment and rehabilitation
facilities in the country. In the public Sector there is only one detoxification centre with 40 beds and,
in the private sector few facilities with desired standard is inadequate to demand of drug treatment services.
Moreover, the private sector is too costly for the drug users of the middle-class families and poor families can not even think of it.
