ABSTRACT
The phenomenon of drug addiction is becoming increasingly serious in Malaysia due to the growth number of addicts among youth. The government and non-government agencies have taken intensifying efforts to combat the problem of drug abuse in this country. Despite various efforts being done by the government for the purpose of treatment or rehabilitation, most are less successful. The effectiveness of the establishment of rehabilitation centres for drug rehabilitation treatment is in reality not of something that we can be proud of. Malaysia is in needs for other modalities as an alternative to the conventional drug rehabilitation process performed by the government. This study therefore is conducted to explore some spiritual and traditional modalities for drug abuse rehabilitation process in Malaysia. Data is collected using content analysis approach. The finding of the study shows that there are eight spiritual and traditional modalities, which will be discussed at length in this article, to address the drug abuse rehabilitation process in Malaysia.
