 Present Progress 

The research of drug prevention and treatment can be divided into seven fields and addressed as follows:

  • 1. In the investigation and monitoring of pervasiveness, the preventive education on drug abuse, psychological treatment for abstinence and social reintegration, law-making and policy evaluation:
  • Through collaboration with various academic institutes and governmental departments in past years, including the National Science Council, the Department of Health, the Executive Yuan, and the Ministry of Justice…etc, National Chung Cheng University has presented considerable research findings in the following fields: drug investigation and monitoring (e.g., database building, trend predicting, image constructing), policy evaluation (e.g., policy to control 3rd and 4th grades of drugs), and drug abstinence (e.g., models of drug abstinence, the analysis of cost-benefit, institutional treatment and diversion systems), preventative education, policy making (drug courts), the network of social integration, and juvenile drug abuse prevention. The scope of pertinent research is comprehensive and macro-scaled, reflecting the current national and international drug abuse issues.

  • 2. In the field of clinical treatment for abstinence:
  • Currently, NCKU Hospital employs Methadone and clinical treatment for drug abstinence. Meanwhile, Dextromethorphan is applied to the treatment of opium-type drugs, which has shown its effect of reducing the use of Methadone and Morphine and decreasing possible damage to the brain and body.

  • 3. In two fields of forensic technology for drug identification and enforcement and prevention of organized crime and money laundering:
  • Currently, the forensic technology for drug identification and enforcement has included the applications of Raman spectroscopy, micro-fluid nano-optical sensing device (a technique created by CCU), and organic electronic sensing technique into a real-time, in-situ drug forensic devise. The accurate detection of Ketamine and Amphetamine residue with Raman spectroscopy has been proven effective at National Chung Cheng University. As for drug user tracking, an electronic surveillance system will be developed with the technological integration of vital-signal detection radar, indoor/outdoor wireless locating systems, and mobile communication networks. With the inclusion of financial management, computer audits, forensic accounting and fraud checking knowledge, the goal of the interdisciplinary research team has shown their ability to control drug smuggling organizations through financial auditing skills and to unveil illegal activities.
