Secondly, consider containing “high relapse rate” as the “top priority” and try the best to reduce the “relapse rate.” To emphasize drug abuse prohibition, it is necessary to highlight drug rehabilitation. If drug abuse prohibition is said to be the most important of the “four exhibitions,” drug rehabilitation will be the top priority. Drug control practices have proven that drug rehabilitation is the most difficult (dependence), and that it is the most difficult to consolidate rehabilitation results (relapse). Rehabilitation result consolidation and high relapse rate are the greatest difficulties in drug control, and are also the root cause of vicious circle. To reduce relapse rate, it is necessary to reduce the number of relapse personnel. We have found in working practices that compulsory detoxification ( physiological detoxification) is easy. Why? Because in drug rehabilitation centers, drug addicts are isolated with the outside world, and are not exposed to drugs (in a drug-free environment); but after they return to the society, relapse easily happens at the consolidation and recovery stage (relapse rate reaches as high as over 80%). Apart from the psychological dependence of drug addicts (mental dependence), one important reason is that: after returning to the society, the drug rehabilitation and recovery personnel may be exposed to drugs (in an environment with drugs). Therefore, among the three links (community-based rehabilitation, compulsory quarantine and rehabilitation, and community-based recovery) in drug rehabilitation, community-based rehabilitation and recovery should be the key links in our work, and how to keep drug addicts away from drugs is very important in these two links.
