Drug rehab facilities give hope to addicts

By Shogo Takagi

SENDAI — Tsuneo Kondo, 64, a former drug addict from Tokyo's Arakawa Ward, opened a drug addiction rehabilitation center (DARC) in 1985 to help addicts to rebuild their lives, but these days such facilities are more common across the country.

At the ninth DARC forum held at a facility for the aged in Sendai in October, 10 drug, alcohol and inhalant addicts struggling through rehab performed for the audience, depicting their individual experiences.

"I used to be a civil servant," one man said, while another said, "The three of us here were sentenced to a total of 25 years in jail," inviting laughter from the audience. In the final scene, the 10 sang the band Mr Children's "Yasashii Uta (Gentle Song)" together, joining hands.

That's good to know. My problem this time is how I can stop my husband from alcohol drinking. It's been an ongoing issue between us, it's becoming even more difficult for me now. I thought It was okay at first but it giving too much stress in my life.
