Iran is suffering from a large-scale drug abuse problem. Despite the fact, demand reduction efforts including treatment are quite new in the nation with limited extension and resources. Meanwhile during the recent years a rapidly growing clinical sector for addiction has emerged. Such rapid growth needs elaboration and exchange of information and expertise. Regarding the peculiarities of the Middle East involvement of regional centers seems more appealing. We believe that Iran with the unfortunately large addiction affliction has much to offer and in return is eager to learn when it comes to clinical interventions in drug abuse.
