65 thousand Albanians abuse with drugs, UN report says

Published: October 03,2012 - 14:36

Tirana - More than 65 thousand Albanian are drug users, while 8 thousand of them use it from many years.

According to the latest report on Albania published by the UN Office of Drugs and Crimes, the number of drug abusers has increased on an yearly basis. Increase has also been noted as regards the people who die as a result of overdose: from one percent to three percent.

More than 80 percent of drug users have it through injection, while 20 percent of them suffer from Hepatitis B and 30 percent from Hepatitis C.

"A problem among Albanian drug users is that 83 percent of them use heroin while needles with which they inject it are used several times, and that's why the number of people with hepatitis from among the drug users is very high. Approximately 20 percent of users take drugs several times a day. A concern is the fact that nearly 400 drug users aged from 19 to 35, have committed crimes under the influence of drugs and 16 of them are women," James Bell, UNODC Representative said.

A number of users have become aware of the problems associating drug-abuse and are undergoing therapy - mainly with methadone - in various public and private centers.

According to the Ministry of Health, methadone continues to be offered for free, but next year it is expected to be reimbursed.

"Around 600 cases are being treated with methadone. I want to say a figure that is not so optimistic: only 10 - 15 percent of the addicted seek medical help, which means that we are unable to provide timely medical assistance to those who really need it, because after all for them it is a personal problem," Policy Director at the Ministry of Health PĂ«llumb Pipero said.

Health Minister Vangjel Tavo, meanwhile, announced the establishment of other public multidisciplinary centers for the treatment of drug addictions. Awareness campaigns on harmful substances will be carried out even in schools, Tavo said, because, as the report highlights, 8 percent of youth are offered drugs inside school premises.
