MOSCOW, December 11. /ITAR-TASS/. A state drug rehabilitation program will help save 300 billion rubles for seven years, head of the Federal Drugs Control Service Viktor Ivanov told a meeting of the state anti-drugs committee on Wednesday.
This program will help reduce crime rate among youth by 15 percent and youth deaths by 10 percent, he said, recalling that drug abusers committed up to 1 billion drug-related crimes a year.
“Thus, a decline in drug-related crimes, youth deaths and economic losses are those significant dividends and priorities of Russia’s policy that the state drug rehabilitation program will yield,” he said.
