One of the most devastating truths about teen drug abuse is that it doesn’t just affect the user, it also affects their friends and their families. Relationships strain and trust can break over the course of the substance abuse.
It’s difficult to pinpoint when recreational drug use triggers an outright addiction, but the physical and psychological risks of drug use are many. It’s important to understand what your child is most likely to encounter every day—from drug use in school to what’s distributed at social events.
Many young people are nowadays becoming addicted to drugs. And drug abuse is a serious physiological and psychological issue that needs serious study and solutions.
To battle the harmful effects of drugs, arming them with factual information will help them to choose to live life drug-free. Bundelkhand Matra Bhumi Samaj Sevi Sansthan is conducting free seminars in schools, distribution drives where we hand out booklets containing the truth about drugs, getting youth groups and clubs together to share the information and stay drug-free. The organisation also holds essay and poster making competitions, as well as trainings for youth to give seminars, in handling intoxicated persons and getting them sober.
The Sansthan already has a small group of like-minded volunteers and is hoping to add more to the team. They are looking for donors and sponsors, and alliances to promote their work. The Sansthan is grateful for all the support that they can get to change lives, to heal our drug-culture ridden society, and to help our children make better life choices. The aim is to reach the children before the dealers do!
Right now, the orgnisation does whatever it can do on an individual and small group level. Once they build up their funds they plan to make public service messages, which we will air in cinemas, on billboards, on TV during sports and lifestyle events. Advertise in magazines, sponsor clean and drug-free shows, conduct drug-free world sponsored walks and marathons, and more.
Reach out and make it easiest to say no to drugs.
