Drug and Alcohol Rehab Jordan
While Jordan is one of the few Middle Eastern countries with a government that is committed to tackling drug related harms, medical and psychological assistance provided by the state still fails to live up to the large number of citizens taking illicit drugs.
In 2009 alone, over 3,500 individuals were apprehended for possessing and taking drugs such as opium, hashish, heroin and marijuana. The amphetamine, captagon, is also very popular in Jordan’s drug scene being used by students, truck drivers and partygoers.
Rehab Centres in Jordan
In 2000, the National Centre for the Rehabilitation of Addicts (NCRA) was opened nearby Amman. The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) helped the local government develop the facility which has a total capacity of 60 beds with options to expand in the future. The Centre has seen moderate success with 2,900 cases dealt with between 2001 and 2013. A very small percentage of these were women however. In fact, IRIN News wrote that the NCRA only opened a ward specifically for female patients for the first time in early 2005. This was due to a lack of available staff who were experienced in treating the needs of females dependent on drugs or alcohol.
Despite a 2001 proposal to open seven more outreach units throughout the country, the National reports that, in addition to the NCRA, there are only two more rehab centres currently open in Jordan, one run by the public security department and the other by the private sector. This presents a limited number of options for those seeking help with drug and alcohol addiction within the country.
Attitude towards Drug Abuse in Jordan
While steps have been taken to reduce the stigma of drug abuse in Jordanian society, there is still a long way to go. The NCRA has helped by presenting an avenue to discuss this taboo topic as have public officials such as Former Prime Minister, Nader Dahabi, admitting that Jordan has a serious drug abuse problem. In further good news, a recent law was also passed which gives addicts the chance to receive treatment and not to be penalised when detained for drug-related offences for the first time.
Progress is slow however, and with the social stigma still lingering, many choose to seek rehabilitation abroad. The fear of any negative repercussions if family, friends and colleagues found out is still quite significant. Furthermore, the limited number of facilities and lengthy waiting lists in Jordan also mean patients have to look to foreign countries for centres which can help them break free from their addiction.
