We live in a culture in which the Islamic world-view is a balanced with moderate outlook on life and its challenges. Islam recognizes that human beings have natural desires, and prescribes ways of fulfilling these desires without allowing the desires to take control of one’s life.
Addiction recovery is healing of brain and soul. The Islamic virtue of moderation is prescribed at both an individual and at a collective level. Islam views the natural resources of the world, and indeed human life itself, as a trust from God. We are treating and dealing with the issue at spiritual level.
