The first clinic dedicated to helping drug-addicted mothers and their children has opened in Iran.

It is hoped that mothers trying to overcome their addictions will eventually be reunited with their children.

The clinic is a sign of changing government policy, as some of Iran's 2.5 million documented drugs users are given help and not treated as criminals.

Al Jazeera's Zein Basravi reports from Tehran.
