ASTANA. – Speaking at the physicians’-narcologists’ session of the CSTO (Collective Security Treaty Organization) countries, which is held in Astana, Kazakhstan, Armenia’s Chief Narcologist Petros Semerjyan proposed the unification of the indicators of these countries.
“So we can compare what we are talking about, which drug addicts,” said Semerjyan during Wednesday’s session.
In his words, there is a huge increase in the number of drug addicts in Armenia.
“[But] The number of drug addicts is increasing also because people have started to apply for medical treatment,” maintained Semerjyan.
“There is a huge increase, 500 percent per year, which is conditioned on the fact that narcological service has become appealing,” said Armenia’s Chief Narcologist, Novosti Kazakhstana writes.
