Erratum

Following publication of the original article in DARU Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences [1], it was brought to our attention that the following sentences are incorrect:

“Smoking opium has a long history in Iran which dates back hundreds of years before the tribal Arab invasion to Iran.” The sentence should read: Smoking opium has a long history in Iran which dates back hundreds of years before the brilliant era of Zoroaster.

“Therefore, a center for at-risk women was established in Shiraz and Esfahan near the Persian Gulf of Iran in 2007.” This sentence should read: Therefore, two centers for at-risk women were established in Shiraz and Esfahan near the Persian Gulf of Iran in 2007.

“In addition, such programs are needed to address special needs of at-risk women such as trauma, rape or poly drug use [45, 46].” This sentence should read: In addition, such programs are needed to address special problems of at-risk women such as trauma, rape or poly drug use [45, 46].

Also, the header “Motivation for treatment entry and positive treatment outcome” should read: Motivations for treatment entry and positive treatment outcomes.

We apologize for the inconvenience.
