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.
