Drug use is one of the phenomena prevalent in various degrees all over the world and the number of people who use drugs (PWUD) has increased in the last few years. States have therefore begun to build community immunity to reduce the violations that PWUD face. Special treatment has been granted to this group to ensure the development of their behavior through rehabilitation and social integration, as an alternative for persecution and sanction.
