There is hardy any place in the city where drugs are not available to the general public including the educational institutions where young people come to study ant at the hostels where they live. The poor drug addicts mostly live in the open and along the roadsides or sleep inside enclosures along the roads sand streets. There are few rehabilitation centers that may admit these drug addicts and so these people keep suffering on account of poverty, addiction and disease. Sometimes the government orders the police to remove them from roadsides and public places but that just removes the problem to other places. For poor drug addicts in Pakistan life is just another name o f darkness and suffering.
