Drug use has been identified as one of the ominous problems that the society faces nowadays. Every drug dependent person has different and complex difficulties to go through in the process of recovering from such harmful habit. Person-centered treatment strategy is thus essential for each drug dependent patient. The treatment not only requires the involvement of the patients, but also the involvement of their families and the community is crucial. However, the family members request many questions to be answered about the drug dependence and their treatment programs, which need to be addressed in order to motivate them coming out of the indecision and confusions. Firsthand experience from being involved with Dhaka Ahsania Mission activities against drug use for 21 years and apprehending such scenarios, inspired the author Mr Iqbal Masud to write the book “Madok Nirvorshilotar Jana OjanaKotha”(The known and unknowns of drug dependence)
