The institution for the treatment of drug addicts Better Addiction Care has published depressing mugshots of detained people who are suspected of distributing and using drugs such as cocaine and heroin. The pictures taken several years apart show a terrible difference in the appearance of the detainees — significant weight loss and multiple ulcers on the face and all over the body.
