Author(s): Jumriani Nawawi, Farida Patittingi

Rehabilitation for abusers, addicts and victims of narcotics is a treatment process to free addicts from dependence, and the period of undergoing this rehabilitation is calculated as the period of a sentence. Abusers, addicts and victims of narcotics abuse, should not be ashamed of participating in a rehabilitation program. The research is a normative legal research using a statute, case, and conceptual approaches. The results show that the essence of the imposition of medical rehabilitation and criminal sanctions means health protection and social protection. The concept of cumulative sanctions for the imposition of sanctions on narcotics abusers is required. The classification of the imposition of sanctions based on the level of use can be used to determine and determine the appropriate sanctions. Cumulative sanctions are proposed as a concept with the aim of creating harmony between the treatment or treatment component with the aim of healing and the retaliation component with the aim of providing a deterrent effect on narcotics abusers.
