    Abstract

    The demand for rehabilitation of drug dependents outstrips the capacity of the Malaysian Government's rehabilitation programme and the use of opiate antagonist like Naltrexone may offer another solution to existing treatment. The objective of the above study was. to verify whether the currently American approved dose of naltrexone provided a safe and effective blockade of narcotic effects in an adult,• Malaysian population especially since the drug pattern of narcotic use and ethnic groups are different between the American and Malaysian populations. Kekurangan pusat-pusat pemulihan dan keupayaan yang terhad program pemulihan kerajaan Malaysia menyebabkan kegunaan ubat naltrekson dicadangkan sebagai satu cara yang boleh digunakan untuk mengurangka'n beban pusat-pusat pemulihan. Tujuan kajian ini adalah untuk menentukan adakah dos naltrekson yang digunakan oleh pihak Amerika Syarikat terjamin dari sudut keselamatan dan kekesanan untuk penagih-penagih dadah di Malaysia, memandangkan corak kegunaan dadah di kalangan penduduk berbilang kaum adalah berbeda berbanding dengan mereka yang di Amerika Syarikat.
