CND Day 4 – United Arab Emirates’ plenary statement on drug demand reduction

Demand reduction is a key part of the UAE’s strategy. Numerous centres have been set up to treat the drug addicted and the necessary techniques. Post-prison release drug treatment programmes can last up to two years.

UAE has made drug education a part of the school curricula and organised seminars for people working in these treatment centres.

The federal drug fighting law is an opportunity for those who take drugs to avoid penalties by seeking voluntary help.
