This international event is one of the most prominent events organized by Dubai Police Headquarters in cooperation with global, regional and local partners. The forum is regarded as a platform for discussing cases related to drug abuse and addiction, in addition to finding the solutions to combat and prevent drugs abuse by detecting and monitoring their current development and foresighting their future as well as building a common and comprehensive structure to deal with this phenomenon from all the aspects (i.e. legislative, field, sanitary, security, social and psychological aspects).
