Two module experts were given the module to determine the validity of the module. They were required to respond to the questionnaires on validity as developed by Russell (1974). Thirty drug addicts from the Drug Rehabilitation Centre were requested to undergo all the modules and respond to the questionnaires on reliability developed by Jamaludin Ahmad (2007).
