Dubai Police took to their official Twitter account to post a reminder that no criminal proceedings will be levied against individuals who voluntarily enroll or are enrolled by their relatives in an addiction treatment unit for substance abuse.

This comes as per article 89 of the UAE legislation on combating drugs and psychotropic substances.

Individuals seeking help for addiction must remain in the unit until a decision has been taken to release them and rehab admission should not exceed one year.
