The Wider Image: Drug rehabilitation in the Philippines
The soaring popularity of methamphetamine - a cheap and highly addictive drug ÐÊ is overburdening health services and tearing families and communities apart in Southeast Asia, driving many countries to adopt hardline policies to fight the surge in narcotics use. Around 700,000 drug users and pushers registered with authorities in a process termed "surrendering". There are few programs or facilities to help them. Local governments and private centres are trying to plug the gaps. Private rehabilitation can range from support groups led by clergy in the predominately Catholic nation, to costly treatment programs that charge hundreds of dollars a month, putting them out of reach for most Filipinos.

A councillor (L) talks to drug addicts in a classroom at the Bangladesh Rehabilitation and Assistance Centre for Addicts (BARACA) in Dhaka September 12, 2015. Last year, the International Narcotics Control Board (INCB) billed the abuse of medicines containing narcotics and their smuggling from India among the "greatest drug-related challenges" facing South Asia. About 83,000 bottles of codeine-based cough syrups were seized in India in the six months through March. In meetings with companies, Indian regulators called the "menace of abuse" a "growing concern". Abuse is particularly common in Bangladesh. At a treatment centre in the capital Dhaka, tales abound of ruined careers and family struggles. Picture taken September 12, 2015. To match Exclusive INDIA-PHARMA/CODEINE REUTERS/Ashikur Rahman

The centre, run by The Kachin Baptist Convention offers a 3-month "course" of prayer, Bible study and devotional singing for drug users. There is no methadone at the centre. Myanmar is the world's largest producer of opium after Afghanistan, and use of its derivative heroin is widespread. The centre's popularity is a testament both to the severity of Myanmar's drug problem and the lack of options for users in a poor country where modern treatment programmes are rare.

Patients of "Hogar Betel", a shelter for the rehabilitation of drug addicts and alcoholics, pray during a therapy session at the shelter in Pococi de Limon, east of San Jose July 7, 2012. The center helps more than a thousand people addicted to drugs and alcohol each year, of which ten percent have been rehabilitated into society on their first attempt and a further ten percent on their second attempt after relapse, according to Joaquin Castillo who founded the shelter 22 years ago. About 30 patients live in the shelter, each for a rehabilitation period of six months. REUTERS/Juan Carlos Ulate (COSTA RICA - Tags: DRUGS SOCIETY RELIGION)

A drug addict takes a dose of methadone at Ar Rahman mosque in Kuala Lumpur April 19, 2012. In Malaysia, a Muslim-majority country where drug addiction is still taboo, drug addicts usually end up being social outcasts until some of them found support from an unlikely source -- the Ar Rahman mosque nestled in the bustling capital city of Kuala Lumpur. Established within it, is a drug-treatment clinic - the world's first to operate in a mosque, according the World Health Organisation. Picture taken April 19, 2012.

A drug addict holds her child as she visits the Nejat drug rehabilitation centre, an organisation funded by the United Nations providing harm reduction and HIV/AIDS awareness, in Kabul January 29, 2012. With little funding and no access to substitution drugs such as methadone, treatment is rudimentary at Nejat for a problem that is growing in a dirt-poor country riven by conflicts for more than three decades. Opiate consumption in Afghanistan, where it has long been a medication but in recent years has been used increasingly for recreation, is also on a sharp rise. Nejat estimates around 60,000 women in Afghanistan regularly take illegal drugs, including hashish and marijuana. Shrouded in stigma, female drug users is a topic that is almost never mentioned in Afghanistan. Picture taken January 29, 2012.

Abo, a long time opium addict, sits in a drugs treatment hospital in Keng Tung in mountains of Shan State January 28, 2012. Myanmar has dramatically escalated its poppy eradication efforts since September 2011, threatening the livelihoods of impoverished farmers who depend upon opium as a cash crop to buy food. With new ceasefires ending years of conflict between the government and ethnic insurgents, Myanmar police and United Nations officials are travelling through opium-rich Shan State to ask farmers what assistance they need.
