Abstract


This article explains the resilience factors among the former drug users. These users have had completed their rehabilitation program in the Cure and Care Rehabilitation Centre (CCRC), and are currently under the surveillance program administrated by the National Anti-Drug Agency. A total of 386 former drug users from the program in Peninsular Malaysia were selected as respondents. The study used cross-sectional data of the former drug users to employ the cross-sectional quantitative method. In addition, data is analysed using a stepwise multiple regression technique. The analysis reveals four variables are significant predictors of former drug users to remain drug-free; drug rehabilitation program (β=.33,t= 7.27, P<.05,) family support (β=.29, t= 6.70, P<.05), employer support (β=.17, t= 3.82, P<.05),  and community support (β=.10, t= 2.24, P<.05). Cumulatively, these predictors accounted 46.2 per cent (r = .68) change in the variance of their resilience (F (4,381) = 81,940, P<.05). These factors found effective for former drug users to remain successful in maintaining a drug-free lifestyle. The findings have provided a positive role to strengthen the resilience strategy of the stake holders for former drug users. In addition, the findings are also beneficial to improve the rehabilitation module for the former drug users.
