Srinagar, January 31: In a first incident of sorts, four woman drug addicts have been admitted to Psychiatry Diseases Hospital in Srinagar.
As per what the doctors of Psychiatry Diseases Hospital have recorded, the drug abuse cases are on rise in Kashmir and a number of cases of women drug addicts have also been received in past few years. However, most of the women addicts remain away from psychiatrist help due to social stigma.
Dr Zaid Wani, an associate professor at Psychiatry Disease Hospital said as per a Tribune Report, “It is an unprecedented and encouraging trend that drug addicts are being admitted by their families to hospitals. Drug addiction among young women is primarily due to peer pressure and stress.”
Among these four cases, one young woman drug addict belongs to old city and has been involved in this habit for the last nine years. The woman started taking drugs to relieve stress and gradually became dependent on many psychoactive drugs.
Also, the behavior of 213 drugs addicts was violent and disruptive.
