High Risk Areas Of Drug Addiction

High Risk Areas are focus areas that have been identified, the occurrence of drug addiction based on 60% of the population under supervision (OKP) nationwide and it is also an area that contributes to social problems such as social diversion and drug addiction-related crime. The determination of a high risk area is based on four main indicators, namely (Orang Kena Pengawasan-OKP), Suspected Drug Addicts (Orang Yang Disyaki-OYDS), New Addicts, and Community Readiness Level. AADK has re-demarcated in 2020 and has identified 155 KBTs nationwide. The breakdown of the area is as follows:

  1. 122 residents
  2. 8 zone (WPKL)
  3. 3 sub-zones (WP Labuan)
  4. 22 State Administrative Districts (Kelantan & Sarawak)

The implementation of the program in KBT is called the ‘Program Penghijauan Kawasan Berisiko Tinggi Penagihan Dadah’ involving 155 KBT. It is one of the strategies to achieve ‘Dadah Terkawal 2025’.
