Introduction: 
Human Rights Watch has found that tens of thousands of people in government-run drug detention centers in Vietnam are held without due process for years, forced to work for little or no pay, and suffer torture and physical violence. Government-run drug detention centers, mandated to “treat” and ”rehabilitate” drug users, are little more than forced labor camps where drug users work six days a week processing cashews, sewing garments, or manufacturing other items. Refusing to work, or violating center rules, results in punishment that in some cases is torture.
