Date:4/1/2010

AllTreatment.com interviewed Nasim Fekrat of AfghanLord about the situation of opium and heroin addicts within Afghanistan. There are only 40 drug rehabilitation centers in Afghanistan to serve the 1.5 million addicts within the country and the capital city of Kabul. In winter months, the U.N. recorded an average of three addict deaths each day. This health crisis is ruining families who do not know the dangers of opium and heroin use. Learn how you can increase awareness and donate to help fight this growing health concern.

(PRWEB) April 1, 2010 -- AllTreatment conducted a phone interview with Nasim Fekrat of AfghanLord.org about the dire situation of heroin addicts within Afghanistan and specifically Kabul. Nasim has been blogging about Afghanistan since 2004, exposing the often horrific events that take place within his home country.

In 2002, there were nine drug rehabilitation centers within Afghanistan; today there are forty. In the United States, there are 13,688 treatment centers, serving over 1.1 million patients, approximately 0.3% of our population. In Afghanistan, it is estimated there are over 1.5 million addicts, roughly 5% of its total population.

Nasim tells the story of the growing use of heroin and opium within Afghanistan: how families give opium to their children to work longer hours, how Afghani villages’ exile addicts, how even their livestock is becoming addicted to these drugs, and what needs to be done to change this horrifying trend.

To learn more about this health crisis, read Nasim’s interview about the situation of heroin addicts in Afghanistan and Kabul. If you are willing, please donate any amount of money you can to help combat heroin abuse in Afghanistan.
