At first, the patient started using marijuana with his friends and in a few years, the patient progressed to harder drugs such as crack cocaine, heroin, speed, and angel dust. The patient stated he used to be on a "trip" for three to four days, during the time in which he would go to work, but his mind would not be in a proper mental state. His employers were always suspicious of him because he would commonly use the washroom [in order to use drugs]. The patient explained how he had been in several rehabilitation programs after spending time in prison. He was removed from some rehabilitation programs because of relapsing into drugs. Several months ago the patient was at a point in which he was attempting to kill himself and was put into jail.
His wife was trying to help and motivate him by telling him that if he did not shape up, he would never by able to see his family again.

Although he smoked recreationally and was not addicted, he did suffer from mental and physical disorders. Generally, the patient was feeling restless and could not stay still for any long duration of time. He suffered from insomnia and suffered shortness of breath and sometimes a burning pain in the chest. He felt that his mind was telling him to walk around and "escape" from his surroundings. He also was quick to get angry and would get tired easily. The patient visited doctors for his breathing problems but X-rays did not reveal anything abnormal. Medical doctors said that the patient showed no physical signs. A psychologist that the patient visited said that although he (the patient) was very intelligent, he needed to think before he acted and stop smoking marijuana. The patient though, did not want to quit smoking as a social and emotional outlet. The patient's father found out about the services offered by Hope to Heal and brought his son in for treatment. The patient has been receiving treatment for approximately three months and has stopped smoking marijuana. The patient stated that he felt better immediately after drinking the taweez water and having some Quranic verses recited and blown upon him (traditionally referred to as 'Dum').

He claims that he just wants to be "normal" and is very satisfied with the help he has received.

The patient was suffering from nausea and vomiting, a sore throat, stomach pain, sore mouth, and bone pain. Some of this nausea or vomiting may have been due to chemotherapy or radiation.

Currently, the patient is fully cured.

The men in these cases were addicted to alcohol to the point that several days would go by without them eating normal food. Instead they would just keep drinking - sometimes passing out and injuring themselves. These excesses were ruining their family life. The men were brought in for spiritual healing, which consisted of taweez and prayers. In these cases, the men completely stopped drinking and were able to support their families.
A woman complained that she would see and feel insects or bugs crawing on her skin, eyes, and the inside of her head.

Other people cannot see these insects and the lady had gone to many different doctors. She had been given painkillers and other drugs. She started her spiritual treatment, which consisted of drinking water containing taweez, recitation of quranic verses, being blown on by Quranic verses. Within a week, she was feeling better, and has seen a big improvement in her problems.
Several family counseling problems have been solved with the combination of traditional counseling and spiritual healing. Sometimes, a husband and wife would come in and discuss the arguments they had been having. These arguments would be waged over various matters, some which were trivial and some were not. A sufficient treatment would attempt to examine some external factors, if any that would cause these types of family issues. If so, then an appropriate treatment consisting of taweez or recitation can be given.
