Stand against drugs handbook published.

Published on 12.08.2019 at 15:36

Promoting youth health is an integral part of Europe 2020: The EU's 10-year economic growth strategy. Hence, health policy is important to Europe 2020 objectives for smart & inclusive growth. With Europe having the highest alcohol and drugs consumption in the world, drug  and alcohol abuse is the most common cause of STI, and  intentional or unintentional injury in youth, including homicides and suicides.

 

Since these daunting drug problems are likely to be paired with any number of other difficulties in youth life, we set to explore how youth want to be empowered about reducing and preventing drug abuse? What are their learning needs: what kind of prevention programmes should be created to help them? And what are the learning needs of those facilitating youth empowerment in drug abuse prevention? 

 

Through SADs, a project co-funded with support from the European Commission, we aimed to seek answers to such questions, and at the same time promote sustainable youth work in drug abuse prevention through non-formal education, by conducting research on community and media based interventions to reduce drug abuse risk factors in youth and raise awareness on their effects and social consequences.

 

Thus, the project activities introduced youth workers to the concept of community & media-based drug abuse prevention through youth work to make great strides in developing both the skills and tools that can stem the tide of drug abuse and curb its devastating effects on young people. As result, the partners developed a handbook with guidelines on youth-centered actions to address drug abuse in youth.
