Brazil debates treatment options in crack epidemic - Article Photos 17/20

In this photo taken Nov. 29, 2012, a boy, allegedly addict to crack, sleeps into an official vehicle as he is taken to a shelter in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. With a boom in crack use over the past decade, Brazilian authorities are struggling to help such users and stop the drug's spread, sparking a debate over the legality and efficiency of forcibly interning users. Human rights organizations in Rio oppose the forced commitment of children by the crews, saying the raids are violent and treatment delivered against the will of patients is ineffective. In December, 119 children were being held in specialized treatment units. (AP Photo/Felipe Dana)
