Rosihon Anwar, Izzah Faizah Siti Rusydati Khaerani, Medina Chodijah


In Indonesia, the fact that the number of drug users is increasing has raised people’s concern. This study aims to investigate the rehabilitation program for heroin addicts through Taubat therapy by one foundation in Indonesia. The study employs a qualitative method in the form of descriptive analysis. The research begins with examining the on-going rehabilitation process in the foundation, analysing the results of Taubat therapy of heroin addicts, and analysing the concept of Taubat referring to Al-Qur’an interpreted through tafsir maudu’i method. The results of the study reveal that (1) the therapy consists of seven steps covering intention, repent, prayer, effort, surrender, gratitude, and consistency; (2) the therapy is proven to succeed in first, curing the addiction, second, surviving in staying sober, and third, being reluctant to go back there; and (3) the explanation of Al-Qur’an gives the addicts more confidence that every individual is valuable not only for themselves but also for their Creator.
