Taliban arrest heroin addicts in Afghanistan and forced them into rehab centers.
After coming to power in Afghanistan, the Taliban vowed to crack down on drug overdose in the country.

Homeless heroine rulers were arrested by Taliban militants and taken to Avicenna Medical Hospital for medical treatment just outside Kabul.
The hospital was formerly Camp Phoenix, a military base set up by the US military in 2003, but is now a treatment center for alcoholism with a capacity of 1,000 people.
