Introduction of the research and development items of detoxification psychological dependence medicine


In order to let drug addicts withdraw their toxic ma-nia, the work of drug prohibiting must be launched extensively to construct a quiet environment, so we put forward a systematic engineering imagine, which includes a comprehensive administration of medical psychology and society. Now we put forward the following report to explore the direction of the World Health Organization (WHO).
