Addiction, which offends social and moral norms, has been considered as a criminal phenomenon in most of the countries all over the world and has been confronted by various punishment mechanisms which fluctuate from fine and imprisonment to sever punishments such as execution. Dominant approach toward addiction has been considered as "strict" on the part of the states involved employing all above- mentioned punishments. However, it is widely accepted that general punishment should be directed toward rehabilitation and addiction is not exception to this rule. According to the research done in domain of drug abuse it has been proved that not only the rehabilitation of drug user has not been realized but also the number of the criminals in question has dramatically increased. Thus new approach of most states is establishment of treatment- centered drug courts in addition to having new mechanism regarding treatment of the addict and prevention of addiction.
