In Vietnam, the number of drug addicts in many provinces and cities tends to increase and has complicated developments. The current drug addiction treatment is also facing many difficulties because the forms of drug addiction have changed. Up to this point, the whole world has not found a treatment regimen for addiction other than psychotherapy on behavior change education. With Hong Kong Polytechnic University's support, the University of Labor and Social Affairs' research team has researched and applied social support interventions for drug addicts. In this study, the research team applied 3 social support methods: Case Management, Family Social Work, and Group Social Work to support drug addicts. The intervention results show that the applied methods in social support with drug addicts have positively impacted psychology and health and increased awareness of addicts and addicts' families. Clients have become more confident, live more actively, and especially have access to services and resources to help addicts stabilize their lives, income, and health. When applied to social support, the common point of all 3 methods has achieved the expected results that drug addicts have changed their perception and behavior of drug use from Positive to Negative for all types of drugs.
